Poppy with NEW Stamen Cane!

Sorry I've been silent for a while. I've been distracted by the move plans. I slacked off on photographing and blogging but I *have* been making things here and there, mostly custom orders. I'll talk about those in an upcoming post but I want to share my latest floral with you right now!

It took me over two hours to build the stamen from scratch but it was worth it! This has twice as many elements as my last one and finally has the bushy, bristly look I've been craving for so long. My only regret is that the pea green, yellow and orange ended up looking more or less the same colour. Remember, kids, always use more vivid colours than you think you'll need in a stamen cane!

What do you think? :)
