On our recent trip to West Green House, one particularly striking display was a row of alliums (or should that be allia?) that were really over, but rather than being cut down, had been left to turn brown so their spiky brown spheres contrasted strikingly against the lush green lawns beyond them.
I wanted to try to recreate this with a diecut, but didn't have an allium die - so I've used the Memory Box Chloe die to give a similar effect, adding a sprig of foliage cut with a Spellbinders Sprigs die. The diecuts are a pearlescent dark brown in real life, but I think the reflection from the pearlescence has made them look almost black in the photo. The background is made by covering an acrylic block with green ink and spraying it with water.
I'm sharing this with
