Some of this n that

First, I finished the glass.  I used more Flair in  502 and 517 and stitched that in basketweave.  Next, time for some lipstick!  I used Splendor 825 with three strands for the red, and then just black and a little white for the highlight.  The collar on her dress was next.  Neon Rays + in black and I used the Upright Cross.  It really does sparkle but hard to get that to show here.  Next is her dress.  I started with Neon Rays + in 26 for the shading by her arm.  The darker color is being done in Gold Rush 14 using 46C and then the squiggly lines are being done in Kreinik #12 003HL.  All the dress is being worked in basketweave and only about one inch square is done as I wanted to make sure I was getting the effect I wanted.  More on that next time.

She is going to sparkle a lot in person, I bet.
