Seed Heads - Poppy

The poppy is one of my favourite flower in the garden. The flowers look so delicate and, yet, have such an intense vibrant colour and appearance. But the show does not stop, comes Autumn The poppy seed heads show the most amazing shape. I just love the structure and the rattling sound of the seeds in the seed head
This is one of the seed heads I collected, a rather small one but perfect for this tag. I treated it with spray ink and Perfect Pearls and layered it on some leftover bits of paper I had at hand. As embellishment I used some ribbon, a little bead and a wee bit of stamping (Waltzing Mouse). Have a lovely weekend, Petra.
