Lily by Jamie G

Files Used: Delicate Flourish 0728, Corner Scroll 0738
Materials: Card stock, ink, markers

I'm back again with another coloring book page that I imported into Funtime and converted into a paper piecing masterpiece!! I've visited this particular website a couple of times for the color book pages and I just loved the Lily. Now if you visit the color by number you'll notice that I didn't exactly follow their "recommendations" and I didn't notice that until after I was done. Guess that just means I'll have to go back, cut it again, and make another! :o)

To make cutting the sections easy, I used the color palate in Funtime to change the line colors. This allowed me to cut the leaves separate from the pedals.

For more information on how to convert any digital coloring book page to a paper piecing or print and cut file, check out Terri's video! She provides you with step-by-step instructions and makes it really easy for you.

I duplicated the whole image and changed the pen style to the kiss cut. I made sure to leave my outer most rectangle as the regular cut. Doing this allows me to cut out the rectangle (in this case) and then leave the pattern to follow while I'm piecing my page together! Love this tip, BIG thank to Terri for this one!! Make sure to watch the entirety of the video shared above to see how easy this is to do

It took me forever to decided how I wanted the pedals to look. I kept going back and forth between keeping them white and coloring them. Finally I decided to cut out the pedals in white card stock and inked them up until I got the look I wanted.

I also inked the edges of the leaves to give them more dimension than what a plain colored green card stock can.

I added the white frame around the paper piecing and although I loved the way the lilies looked, there was something definitely missing! After searching the Boss Kut Die Cuts, I found the Delicate Flourish 0728 and Corner Scroll 0738 to the perfect finishing touch.

I inked the edges of both embellishments and used a VersaMarker on the leaves of the Delicate Flourish 0728.
