My husband had the idea to “throwdown” a challenge to me and some of my blogger friends. He chose flowers for us to use as inspiration. He gave me, Rafflesia Arnoldii….
“Rafflesia arnoldii is a member of the genus Rafflesia. It is noted for producing the largest individual flower on earth. It has a very strong and horrible odor of decaying flesh, earning it the nickname “corpse flower”. It is endemic to the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra.”
Yes, at my request he gave me the Corpse Flower…. because I’m a sick person and I would plant them around my house for Zombie Defense Landscaping!
I went quite literal with this look… because I had no freaking idea what to do with this. I didn’t know the flower was red when I asked for it. I added in the slightly evil brow, because this is a giant demon flower from hell that eats flies and smells like dead bodies. If it had brows, they would be evil brows!
I also tried to get my lashes good and clumpy, to resemble the little nubbins inside the flower!
I had fun with this, I enjoy being pushed and having to come up with something to post even if I hate it. I don’t hate this look, but I was worried about it and didn’t get it done until yesterday!
Once I have the others to link to I will put the links below. (We all live in different time zones, so I can’t say for sure when theirs will be posted!)
