brooch week! day 5 of 7

Hooray! Friday of brooch week is finally here meaning that 1) the weekend is just around the corner and 2) it's time to reveal another felt pin creation. Today's brooch is all about the bright seasonal fun of spring with a nice fuchsia flower:

I really liked making this one but boy was it ever hard to photograph! I wanted to keep my brooch week images consistent with that lime green background but the super bright saturated pink was really not ideal with the green. After playing around with my camera settings and photoshop I think I managed to get a few images that turned out alright but I still think this brooch is much more appealing in person. I used a layered petal design for this one and am quite pleased with the result. It has quite a bit of texture and presence without having poly-fill stuffing like the other brooches so far. Take a look at that close up goodness:

Yay! A nice fun bright flower to add to the brooch collection:
