Fiber Art Piece for January Challenge

Earlier this month I posted my Haiku for our January word "Beginnings".
I also posted a photo that I created to illustrate the Haiku.

Treacherous frost lurks
Tender shoots defy the chill
Hardy rosebuds thrive.

Here is the Fiber Art component

 The background is lutradur - burned edges, painted, stamped and painted with pearl-ex. Added wintery textures with stamped angelina fibers and sequin waste.
The rosebuds are printed from my garden photos - and thread painted.
A purchased leafy "vine" is appliqued.
The Haiku is printed on Extravorganza that has been fringed and painted on the edges.
The whole piece is covered with a sparkly tulle for added winter effect. A few scattered beads add motion.

Thank you for explaining how you constructed your quilt. Fits perfectly with the haiku theme.
I've recently used Extravorganza in a Petroglyph "scene" but I also like your stamped Angleina fibre.
Well done.

Your haiku gave me a chill with its thoughts. Great work.
