Inspired by Jenny Dowde i crocheted a round of crabstitches around the flower. I crocheted onto the front loop of the last round, it leaves the back loop free for attaching it to the piece.
I love the way the shell is accentuated by both the colors.
I crocheted a black round onto the fern, then filled the gaps and sides, using the back loop of the black round. It leaves a hint of a line around the fern.
This is the progress so far.
