This is beautiful. I love the way you've used a colour other than red for the lips - it makes it more real, somehow. The subtle colouring gives the whole thing a rather ethereal look.

Thank you, I love doing her, the lips where fussy cut from an upholstery fabric that had a large pink rose. I just used the part between the petals. I also used fabric pencils to enhance corners. I love doing these, I made my BFF and Me portrait for Christmas , gave it to her, and she loved it. I love this tutorial and the teacher as well. very inspiring.

Thank you, the eyelashes are free motion, starting at outer edge, with black, run along the top of eye ball, then travel up and backdown, and then move over about a eighth inch and repeat across eye. When needed, I went over to fill in line.
