Beauty in Sugar

By iancrowson  
These are sugar roses and leaves which my wife made for her exam piece during a sugar craft course. They were designed to be a centre piece on a cake.
Sorry about the writing but that is part of the picture.
Thanks for looking,
Thanks for the comments, the boarder gets a mention.
I've uploaded two V's. One with thinner boarder, one without.

That's brilliant Ian. The sugar, I mean, although the image does it justice.
One thing though. There's a school of thought, to which I tend to subscribe, that says that you should never use a frame that's the same colour as the dominant one in the image.
You know how I feel about logos etc. on images; they don't bother me and the writing on here is clearly there for a purpose, so rule one applies!

Excellent work, both you and your wife. I do prefer V2 with the lighter border. Cracking colour and detail.

Clearly your wife is every bit as artistic as yourself! What wonderful work and a striking image too. Thank you so much for dropping in an leaving a comment on Iris Siberica. Hadn't realised you had until this afternoon. It gave me a good reason to check out your PF and I so love the floral images especially. Have left a few clicks and comments!

Two talented artists in the one family.
Many congratulations on your wife's handicraft.
I've tried to do a little of this but way too time consuming,
so this must have taken forever to create.
The sad thing is on a cake they'll probably not be scrutinised in the same way as a photo
except by other Sugar Crafters.
You've done justice to the whole piece with excellent lighting.
I think border two is just fine.

Your spot on. Only other sugar crafters see the work. You have to really enjoy actually making the flowers.

Super work by your wife and makes for a great photo too.
Nice to have such a record.
I like V2 with the thin border.
I almost always chose the dominant photo colour match too !
