Bad Company, punch needle embroidery

This punch needle came from a collage I did first — painted in acrylics and painted over strips of silk scarves and hankies that I got from thrift stores and from friends who know my obsession with fabrics. The painting is very heavily textured, and for the longest time I had no idea where it was going. Eventually, a face appeared and then another one, peeping over the shoulder of the first face.

I immediately knew that this second little figure was not good news.
