I rediscovered a love for the Bordeaux cartotecnica crepe paper. It looked so good made into a dahlia and I couldn't stop staring at the subtle colour differences due to the stretches at certain parts of the petals.
I did this arrangement for an ex-student of mine who wanted something for his newly acquired wine bottles. So the challenge was definitely to do something less girly than my usual style.
The entire thing turned out pretty masculine (as masculine as flowers can get, at least) so I was quite pleased.
