'tis the season of lotuses. ♥ They are beautiful flowers, and quite wonderful...the cooling shade of blue is perfect for the heat of summer.
I used tsumami kanzashi techniques to create this flower, and hand dyed each petal by hand.
it's perfect for summer events...I think the gradation effect is really worth the effort.
You can see more pictures of this delicate piece (it has trailing lotuses~) here on my etsy: [link]
