Akina flower

This is a bit of an unusual colour combo for me. Red and Brown. It actually goes against everything that my father has taught me over the years about colour. Although it should not work, somehow it does work for me in this case. Maybe it is due to the case that I just wanted to use this product rather than spend ages deciding whihc was the best colour as a background for the red flower. At then end, I just like it even if it is a bit colour wrong.

The flower is stamped using the parasol image on the Akina set, then trim them, score the lines, make a cut on one of them and fold it. Repeat twice more the same process , then intertwine them and glue them together. Not sure which flower that will be, be I think it looks a bit like the Remembrance poppies.
