I think its pretty radtacular.
I cut out the shape of a fatter type petaled flower then pinched and stiched down the center and , i think the term is rouched it? then I sewed on the beads. then rolled a smaller strip and added beads to that for the stamen. I did it while waiting for my dad to come through surgery...so black fit since i was feeling kind of dark. But it was all good, dad was ok, and the flower made my day. I love how the black hides the beads almost untill the light hits it and then it has kind of a little sparkly magic effect to it.
feedback of all kinds welcomed yo!
