The name Anemone comes from the Greek for "windflower." As Greek Mythology share, the anemone sprang from Aphrodite's tears as she mourned the death of Adonis. The Anemone will bring luck and protect against evel, and legend has it that when the anemone closes its petals, it is a signal that a storm (or rain) is approaching.
Anemones are found in every flower color there is --and so this Sprite's halo of Anemone is every color. It is quite a challenge to show the translucency of the delicate Anemone petals with pencils and watercolors but the nature of watercolor sure lends credibility to my effort!
This is a Z-fold card inspired by Sandi MacIver. The embossing is with a Cuttlebug folder, and the artwork is done with watercolor pencils, paints and ink, on Caslon textured watercolor paper. The mats and card base are SU Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise. The centers of the Anemone's are yellow enamel dots touched with black ink (Anemone centers are black with a ring of yellow.) The tiny butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
