Painted Luther Seal

I was a little unsure of how to add the colors to the Luther Seal that will be on the banner...

Remembering that if it didn't turn out right, I could go to plan B...

Here's how I did it:
~ copied the image from the internet
~ enlarged it
~ printed it out in black and white on cotton lawn with freezer paper ironed on it
~ pinned it to a piece of canvas-like fabric
~ painted with Jacquard Textile paints, and Lumiere on the outer circle
~ the color between the rose and the gold circle is teal (can't tell from the photo)
~ Pigma Micron pen for accents
~ it felt a little like "paint by number"

I'm very pleased with the outcome!
