I started this with a really nice wet in wet, but then got fussy about trying to form the ripples in the petals. I'll be trying this one again.

Linnie, this is PERFECT; what is the problem? I think it is beautiful.

It's beautiful Lin, but I do understand about the feeling of overworking. Don't even think about it-it's great!

Absolutely gorgeous! I love the variation in coloring of the petals - they are so beautifully sculpted. Had to rush to London one week early to help take care of Henry and Syd while my daughter is in the hospital with probably earlier than expected delivery. Thank goodness I can at least keep looking at the active blogs since I won't have access to a scanner for the next 3 weeks.
