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

I did this for a swap. I really hope my partner likes it. She loves vintage stuff. It is tinted with crayons and the inside of the flowers are beads.

Such tidy, tidy stitches!  As USUAL.  Is crayon tinting hard?  Time consuming?  Fussy?  I'm fascinated by it, but embroidery is something I do sitting in one spot and it seems like something I'd have to stand up or move around for.  Is it?  Also, I'm pretty sure she's not a natural blonde and if I can dye my hair with crayons, I think I'd save a bundle.  You think that'd work?

She is gorgeous! Your crayon tinting always looks perfect.  I tried it once- needs work  Grin
The beaded flowers add some fabulous yet classy pizazz!

Thanks everybody!
Mistress T.-it is so easy! You just color in your pattern, lightly, with crayons. Don't press down too hard, you can always go back and darken it, then you stitch around the color. Easy Peasy! Crayon tinting our hair-I'm up for it!  Wink Cheesy

Really?  That's it?  Is it washable?  Would my hair get a waxy build-up?

The embroidery is washable-the hair, might end up looking like a matted crayon Cheesy and might smell a bit bad but yeah! Think of all the money you will be saving on hair dye. LOL!

Like Digital Misfit, my crayon tinting skills leave much to be desired, whereas yours are perfect!

I love her F. Scott Fitzgerald eyebrows. Lucky swap partner!
