Here is my entry into the contest.  Marilyn as a naughty but nice dancer.  My sketch is attached to show my starting idea.  Her head dress and shoes have bead-work.  The rest I used a variety of stitches to add texture and depth.  Hope you like!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

The different stitches sure do add that desired texture. The chain stitch under the skirt is great!

I love the way you created the fishnet stockings and the veil the same.

What a great way to reimagine the iconic image! I really love it. The detail in her hair and the beadwork is so well done!

I love the texture on the underside of her dress!  She really looks like she is dancing. =)
