Dirty Gold Peacock Paper Flower

There is something carnal about this flower.

... Or maybe that's just how I see it.

Dark shades of grey, black intertwined with white stripes give the sort of wild background to flashes of peacock feathers in green and gold and the occasional golden bronze swirl.

The paper was manipulated by punching, inking, distressing, folding, creasing, gluing, until a sophisticated shape emerged and a flower was born.

It can be hanged on a wall, perched on top of a gift box, tied on the wrist as a corsage, worn as a pin, and anything else you can think of.
