Portrait Transfer with Cross-Stitch (#2)

This photo transfer was made using the same technique as the first one.  This time,  I left the color print to dry overnight.  After it was dry, I sprayed it with water and peeled it off to reveal the image underneath.  It peeled up at the bottom but I actually like the edges to look imperfect.

I used free cross-stitching to accent her braid, her sweater, and her necklace.

Again, colored pencils were used to highlight the eyes and mouth and a fine point pen for some details. I also sponged ‘Red Brick’ Distress Ink onto her cheeks.

Searching thr0ugh my stash of text w0rds, I found this phrase…

I’m finishing up a third transfer this week so I’ll post some photos of it soon.  Hope you’re having a great start to your New Year and I always appreciate the visits and comments!
