Girl with the red lips cross stitch

Girl with the red lips cross stitch 
I've been busy recently sorting out my cross stitch design work and stitching up sample pieces. I couldn't decide if I liked this pattern 'Girl with the red lips' when I first created it. It's very different from my previous work and had a very fashion / pop art look art it, When I showed it to my Stepdad he even commented that it looked like a Roy Litchenstein picture.
As I started to sew her, I enjoyed the pattern more and more. It was liberating to work in all black to start off with and it was exciting to see her appear on the fabric. I have loved photographing her appear and sharing it on Instagram.

Her eyes seem to look right at you and she certainly has attitude.

When I finished stitching her up in black I was torn about whether to add her lipstick as I had so enjoyed working in just one colour.

However I wanted to stay true to the pattern and create a good sampler piece of the pattern for my Etsy store. I am so pleased I did the pop of colour makes her lips look luscious and my husband was so impressed with the design he said we should hang her in our bedroom. He has never said anything so complimentary about any of my designs before.
