Poppies

I am back with another creation after being inactive for a few weeks. This time I tried to create the cute and delicate poppies.

Though poppies come in various colors, I was drawn the most towards this yellow flower. I loved the colors in the stamen.

I used strips of 3 mm to make the petals and 10mm for the  stamen. I also added the stem to the flower that add a new dimension to the flower. With the stem, I can also keep the flower in a vase.

Since the vase was looking empty with a single flower, I also made a red poppy and some leaves.

I totally loved the final arrangement. I hope you like it too!!
