Final Stages.

 I decided that I wouldn't add beads to the Blood Lily stamens, as the only ones that I had, and I wasn't going to buy any more beads!, were a bit out of proportion. That is, too big. I added some shading and so on with felt tip pens and some stitching to give a bit of a lift to the flat areas of petals.
A backing and satin stitch to join it all together and it's finished. I added a small name plate on the back, as I did with the Lotus, giving the name of the garden that I photographed the flower in and the date that I visited the garden.
