An artist beloved of the horrorpops drew this awesome Voodoo chic and I knew I had to embroider it!  It has taken a little over 4 months but I finished it just in time for the Rainbow of stitches contest


Check out the orginal Art work by Jake Geiger,  Check him out @ http://jakegeiger.blogspot.com/ and http://jakegeiger.deviantart.com/ Smiley

Here is my version let me know what you think!



Close up of her Do

The Rat:  I almost didn't stitch him I was so unsure of how to go about it.  But now I can't picture this project without him!  He has 5 different shades of brown in his fur.  I think he is my favorite part about the whole thing!

Close up of her face

Closer close up.

Here's the frame I used a lattice style stitch for the border around the inside and then just a vine stitch for all the open work. And there's her cute earring. Smiley  

It took about 4 months to complete her (on and off)  I really enjoyed working on her.
