I made a lot of roses in red and white , I lined up about 13 roses and measured the length and then cut the heart shape to that length. I marked the area for the stars and since I wanted to define the stripes I first cut red colour strips and stuck them leaving the same amount of space for the white roses. I then stuck the red roses over the red strips and white over the white. I filled the blue parts with beehives and I added some punched white stars over the beehives. The addition of the stars added so much beauty to the piece.
I found a small image of a Sulphur butterfly and used it to quill the little butterflies. I hand cut yellow colour 80 gsm paper into 2mm strips for the butterflies.The roses were hand folded , Claire has an excellent tutorial . The dimensions of the heart is about 22X21cms.
