Final placement before applique.
If you've ever looked at passionflowers, you know they have these amazing purple tendrils. I decided the easiest way to create this feature of the flower would be to add paint. I pulled out my favorite Lumiere metallic paints and went to work. I love how they turned out.
If you look closely at passionflower tendrils they appear striped. I didn't want to try to paint that so I decided to add silver metallic rhinestuds to the final project to get the effect.
