More umbellifers

Umbellifers continue to intrigue me and I wanted to attempt something a little different.  My inspiration was some pastel sketches I did of hogweed against the fields and sky.  I glued down scraps of fabric with bondaweb and then stitched one layer of seed heads. I then added some pieces of transparent silk fabric to give some depth and stitched again.  I added colour to the stems with Intense crayons.
