Petal Person - Santa
From Martha at PulpArt. Sells for $10. Click on image to be taken to the shop!
This Santa was created entirely from real pressed flowers, ferns and leaves that I grew in my garden, picked at the height of color and then pressed for many weeks. Once dried, I arranged the botanicals into this sweet Santa, then made the artwork into printed cards.
His face is a Bleeding Heart; his beard is Bridal Wreath blossoms; the fur trim is Queen Anne's Lace and his belt is a maple leaf. His belt buckle is a tiny Verbena blossom and everything red is either a leaf from a Burning Bush or a petal from a Clematis vine growing up my house. He holds a fern in his hands.
