UFO sre finished.
This started out as me practising flowers, esp the dahlias and peonies using my hand dyed ribbons. There is such a sense of satisfaction in getting things finished and I must admit to be pleased with this little bouquet. The vase is made from angelina fibe stamped with a Ribbonsmyth vase stamp. I like the dahlias, just a little different and the peonies of course. I cannot confess to them being original as I did see something similar in one of my sre books. The hand dyed ribbon does give it some life. I tried to dye variegated ribbon as in the way it used to be done early last century. With strips of colour running the whole length of the ribbon. The ribbons when dyed don't look very good and I didn't think I would ever use them but I have done a few leaves with that ribbon and love the effect.
