Oh so glad it is Friday!

Variation on the current theme.....

As it was so extremely difficult to add a nice background/texture into the image, due the delicate nature of the petals I started experimenting with different background right from the start.
You would think it is a no brainer but I'm new to this flower studio business. Blush
Luckily we have a stash of luxury crafting papers and they work really well - just bluetacked onto my three-fold foam board.

Thank you to everybody for you votes, comments and advise on yesterday's image and for looking at this one. Smile

Good use of craft paper. I personnally would have used a darker colour, to enhance the delicate tones of the bloom. Just a suggestion. Peter.

Agreed. I will be on the look out for more soon. At the moment my supply is a little limited. Grin
