Hibiscus 3




The third in this series is painted with acrylic fabric paints (Setacolors) on cotton fabric.  I used wool batting and several different types of cotton threads.


I used wool batting and cotton threads.  I really like the colors in this one --  this one has the brightest colors and I find that most appealing.


The beetle was painted with metallic Setacolors -- I think I used copper and a bit of silver on the basic black beetle.  






The backside features my specially-dyed thread-boo-boo-camouflage fabric.


I am linking up with Nina-Marie and Off-the-Wall-Fridays... check it out here.

Looks great! I haven't used wool batting before- does it get as stiff as polyester with heavy quilting? Thanks!
