Tropical Blooms parasol, panel 1: red hibiscus

The final flower!  This is tambour beaded in deep red beads, for a good contrast with the yellow and green used elsewhere.  I used variegated reds for shading at the centre of the flower:

I’m pleased with how it’s turned out, which is just as well as I now have another nine to go!  I’m going to have to order a lot more beads…
