I did this for a swap with Lilyvanilli, she's on a tote bag. The image is artwork by Angelique Houtkamp (check her out http://www.salonserpent.com/Home.html ). 
I used split stitch, back stitch, satin stitch and long and short stitch (most of the fill stitching is long and short). I like how the shading on her dress came out.
Gosh, it's been an age since I last posted on the Craftster needlework boards- it's good to be back!

It's good to have you back Sewph!

This is a great piece, and it is nice to have one of our most talented stitchers back and showing us how it's done!
It looks like the stitching is of the usual high quality as well! Smiley

I love her artwork! I have a printmaking teacher who really got me into her.

This turned out great. Especially the teeth!

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??

All of the light blue looks really good! I also wanted to add this pic so all of you could see the amazing detail in her hair. I don't know how sewphie survived all this tiny satin stitching - I would have gone crazy! Anyway, check it out, it's gorgeous:

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
