Pen sketches above of jellyfish, mantid, leafysea dragon etc and below is my picture for the Illustration Friday challenge - Artificial
The petals are from an artificial flower, they also have a sequin & bead in the centre. The background paper has a bit of collaged newspaper and it's been painted and stamped [hand made stamps of course]. I had dipped the flowers in dye some time ago but I ended up with pink fingers as the colour had not been 'set'. I cropped the work but I think I prefer it before cropping, see the bottom picture.
