Dexter Week - the Blood Spatter Orchid

Welcome to Day 2 of Dexter Week!
This is one of those iconical pieces of imagery from Dexter that has stuck with me since the moment I saw it.
I searched so hard to try and find the name of this flower/plant, just shy of having to get a hold of this episode to watch it and see what Hannah called it, so if you know, please advise me and I can edit this post. I wish I knew, because I would love to have this plant!

I really hope in Season 8 that Hannah is still around. I liked Rita, Dexters wife, but Hannah is the first female companion Dexter has had aside from her that I could stomach one bit. Lumen was a weirdo and that british broad, Lila, from Season 2 was so annoying I actually stopped watching until a year or two later. Anyway - last season Hannah came on board as the newest love interest of Dexter and really revved the season up. She's a killer, too! And she brought him this gorgeous orchid-style plant with blood splattered petals, which I am trying to recreate here.

This was a 2nd attempt at these flowers after the first try went so far south  I almost didn't bother to re-try this! But these will suffice, I'm kind of split down the middle on how I feel about them, hopefully you guys like them.

My base is Laters, Baby by Literary Lacquers. Then I painted on the orchids with white, light grey, a blood red for the blobs and then a vibrant neon purple and yellow for the middle bits.

So - if you watch Dexter, who's been your favorite love interest of his?

Now please, please, go check out my lady friends also doing the Dexter thang this week:
