As minor as they may seem, my favorite parts are the stems! They pinch and pull and twist with authority; nice dovetailing of concept and image too.cool!... uh... sorry ~~hot!
I like your collages, looking at your page here. The way you mix texture, colors and details with the main motif, I really like it.
Good one Mardi! Yep... that is hot! (burning) Great collage work.
