Indian Wall-Hanging continued

Progress has been slow since I last showed you, but the Indian wall-hanging now looks like this (click on the picture to see it larger)
A few details ::
This was a silk rod that I flattened out, stamped on with metallic paint and then beaded. Below you can see an original silk rod, and the stamped one before beading complete above.
I always keep all the papers that I put excess paint/spray/stamping onto, and I also keep any wipes I use to clean up. Below is a dried, painty wipe, spray basted to a piece of felt.
This is that base combined with a metallic paint image stamped with a lovely borrowed indian foam stamp.
And here it is all stitched and beaded and now attached to the hanging.
This lady is one of the TAP transfers. She's got a wee bit of batting behind to give her a bit of dimension and is edged with indian sari cord and sequins.
I don't really mind that progress is slow for this project. Now to decide what's next...
