This is based on an Angelique Houtkamp painting - http://www.salonserpent.com/Previous.html
I'm very into Angelique's work at the moment this is the third Angelique inspired thing I've done. I was pleased with how the flowers came out ('scuse the rumples this close up was taken prior to ironing and framing)
I used those rayon threads a lot on this piece and love the shiny, silky look they give.
