    I wish I could get a better picture of this one but my camera wants to darken everything. I did the iris with colored pencils. The purple on the background isn't nearly as dark as what the picture shows. It was fun though and will probably do it again. By the way, the iris are out of my garden. I couldn't resist drawing them when they were opened. I love the positive and negative look on the outside edges. Now I have to decide how to quilt it.

    What kind of pencils did you use? The iris is so life like with the veins and curled edges. Will it be a wall hanging or will it go in a quilt?

    It's a wall hanging. I used Prisma colored pencils. I am not sure how washable it would be though.

    its stunning!!!

    if you treat the prisma pencil with fabric medium, allow it to dry for a day or 2, and heat set it the art work will be washable.

    Thanks so much for the information. I will try that. I was just playing around to see if I could do it but it would be nice to make it more colorfast.

    This is from the Prisma website: Can Prismacolor Colored Pencils be used on fabric?

    The Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils were not designed for use on fabric. Since they are waxed based pencils, they probably won’t hold up to washing and drying; however, some of the pigments used in the colored pencils MAY stain clothing.

    from me: So, just don't plan on washing, maybe frame it! Your drawing is very beautiful!
