Thank you so much!
reanie51 asked:
What did you use for your pattern and what did you use to create the veining?
cjtay answered:
I cut my own petals freehand and also used a lily petal press for the pattern, and still had to re-bevel the pattern. I will post directions soon. I have been way out of touch with this page of mine, as I have been dealing with breast cancer for nearly a year. I am on the good side now, but still have radiation treatments to finish off this next week. Sorry.

Can I make a Christmas Stargazer Lily? Red and green with silver glitter?
cjtay answered:
Yes, it can be done. I guess you would consider it a whimsical or fantasy flower.
