Hola!!  I stitched this up for ZidishaLuxe in the Ongoing Hoopla Swap Round 3...she has received and posted in the forum so now I can share with you all.  I chose to stitch this for her because she had this piece of art on her wist list and I thought it was interesting.





I painted white fabric to get that background color, to match the artwork...used felt and stitched on with split stitch, used backstitch, french knots, satin and chain stitch.  I used chalk for the white color on the skulls eyesockets and actual blush and lipliner for her face.  I would do something different from the chalk next time for shading.  Hope you dig her!

Haunting and spooky.  The design, stitching, and colors are all so lovely.  I like the shading, too.
