Handmade, hand dyed lotus kanzashi in pink by hanatsukuri Handmade, hand dyed lotus kanzashi in pink by hanatsukuri
This is one of my handmade tsumami kanzashi. I folded each petal by hand, and dyed it by hand. This flower could be a lotus or a water lily, as I see them. (Though another artist once explained the botanical difference, I haven't made any difference for my lotus versus lily designs. Ah well...)

The gorgeous blue background is oil paint. *loves on it* :iconiluplz:

What do you think of this piece? :)

I've always loved the defined point of your lotus petals. The background is pretty stunning in contrast with the various shades of blue~

Oh the pink is a serene contrast to the blue - much like a pink lotus that stands out from the blue waters that surround it ^^

I think the difference in lotuses and water lilliies is probably more biological in terms of location and growing season but imo, I think that they looks so similar that you could use the title interchangeably. Your flowers are so beautiful, it doesn't matter what you call them.
