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.
