Ready for Thread Painting

I added a shadow around the rose to help it stand out against the background, then attached it to the background with a zig-zag stitch. I also cut out the background that is behind the rose to give it a smoother finish. The seams in the pieced background would cause me problems when I started thread painting, and would leave ridges in the rose. It is now ready to be fused to a piece of Decor Bond. Then I'll start the thread painting.
