Here it is.
The orchid spurred me into action, I have had a digital die file for quite a while and have been trying to get floristry wire and tape to make it. Last week I finally bought them after lockdown.
The file was quite daunting, but had good instructions, I cut all the pieces out, actually cut more than I needed, but they were all used in the end. I put them all in sizes on my desk and that was it, I got too afraid to start! Yep! how silly is that?
Anyhow next day I inked the edges of each flower and buds and the leaves as a starter. I read the instructions and started putting it all together, in the end it wasn't as bad as I thought, why do I get overwhelmed like that? They say face the fear, I did and it has worked out well and I like it! It took a few hours with great concentration, well I am getting older! Here's the result although for some reason the inking of the leaves can't be seen, the flowers are not much better, I really don't know why, unless it was the light I took it in, (not good!) they look great in real life. It's 15 inches high.
I tell you what those flower centres are tiny!
the wonky flower open bud has been corrected.
