I saw this beautiful artwork a few weeks back of the 9th Doctor and Rose in a scene from the episode "The Unquiet Dead" http://hailleypete.deviantart.com/art/I-believe-this-is-my-dance-349409866. I loved it and knew I had to embroider it.

It started off as a crayon tinted embroidery, but halfway through I decided that the doctor's jacket needed to be darker and crayons weren't working. So, I decided to color it in with black marker which would have been okay but I had used a mark b gone pen to draw the picture on and it needs water to erase the blue marks. Roll Eyes I finished the hoop up and then tried to carefully remove the marks without making the marker run, well of course that didn't work out. Some of the blue marks would not go away and the marker ran in a few places and messed it up.  Roll Eyes So, I thought I'd try something different since it was already messed up. I pulled out some watercolors, painted over everything except the jacket and ended up with this. I am so pleased with how it turned out and I think I may try using watercolors with embroidery again in the future.

Thanks for looking!

That looks amazing!  I was expecting it to have been done with some kind of fancy fabric paint.  I would never have had such a clever idea.
