When Michele saw artist Valérie Boy's Féérie Florale, she was struck with inspiration. She wanted to attempt to make a knock off of sorts. The fact that the original is powder-coated metal and stands six feet tall, that didn't dissuade Michele. She jumped right in and adapted to suit the materials available to her and her expertise. Here's what she created:
Ultimately, Michele chose to use canvas and card stock. The latter she stamped with flowers motifs, which she then cut with an Xacto. She attached the paper to the canvas with clear photo corners so she could re-use the canvas. (My kinda gal.) By gently pulling up the cut sections of the paper, it makes the flowers pop and lets the fairy lights that she attached to the back of the canvas shine through. Brilliant.
