I made this for my partner in the 50's B-Movie Swap. She received her package today, so I figured it's finally safe to post. Smiley


The image is based on one from a set of tattoo flash. My camera didn't pick it up very well, but her skin is a pale bluish-green with some shading around the clavicles, nose, etc. I used crayons to tint the lighter parts (that's all the rage these days, huh?), and marker for some of the darker stuff like her hair. Everything is done in backstitch, except her eyes, which are done in split stitch and her lips, in satin stitch. I searched for weeks for an oval-shaped frame, and finally found one that was the perfect size. I kind of dig how her eyes wound up looking bruised and bloodshot.

Thanks for looking!

This is super great.  Are her iris' of her eyes crayon tinted or stitched?  I can't tell.  You did a great job with her... I'm impressed, and absolutely love the subject matter.  I was the Bride of the Monster of Dr. Frankenstein for Halloween in college, this brings me back... dig it.

Thanks so much! Cheesy  I've been so busy the past few months, it feels like so long since I've posted anything. Nothing like a swap for inspiration and a kick in the arse. Wink

Thanks! The irises are stitched. They were tinted, but they were pretty light, and I wanted her eyes to "pop".

Thanks again!:D  I have to admit, she was a little hard to part with. I think I'll try to make one for myself at some point.

Thanks! The cheeks are crayon tinted. Directly under the eyes, I did a bunch of layering and blending with crayons and markers (which did bleed a bit) until I was satisfied with the result.

Thanks, guys! Smiley  I have to say the tinting was really fun. I highly recommend it. I tried it on a couple of projects a few years ago, but haven't done it since. It seemed weird to do so little actual stitching, but it was very cool to experiment with different effects.

Thanks so much!:D The frame was a lucky find. I had my heart set on an oval-shaped frame, and the only other one I could find was an ugly red and brown.
