Little Girl With Doll Purse Continued....

I have the seams embroidered now and I've started on the beading:

Little Girl With Doll Purse

I painted the lace and it looks like it blends in and gets a little lost. This issue will be resolved once I bead it. It's truly the beading that makes the stitching, lace and trim pop out!

I was asked what software I used to tint the photograph. I use Corel Photopaint 12. I made a custom brush with 97 % transparency. That adds color to the photo without covering the image with "paint".

it looks beautiful.. I have been on XS a while and haven't CQ'd in quite some time.. but seeing your work makes me want to pick that up again.. I have a question - what method do you use to paint your lace?

Well, the painted lace certainly is more subtle and blends so well with the block.
You know best!
