    That is stunning Pam
    I thought it was just the camera flash causing the face to be pale

    Brilliant. I thought it was flashback as well.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.

    Thank you all.

    I really meant the definition for the eyes, lips and mouth. There is some back stitching there but I think it should probably be slightly darker.

    You can see the chin well and the mouth slightly but was wondering whether to do it all in the same colour as the chin.

    That is amazing - it must have taken many hours of work. I agree about the face - I'd use a darker colour if it was me.

    Absolutely stunning! I also agree that the eyes and nose need more definition. Its worth trying a slightly stronger colour

    I have often used a slightly darker colour for the back stitching. Several of Jane Greenoff's kits, well the flowers anyway, could have done with a slightly darker colour as what she supplies fades into the stitching. It has often seemed a bit pointless doing all that back stitching, then finding I cant see the thing. On the other hand, I have found that instead of black, which was used a lot in older designs from the USA, a dark grey or brown is often better, as in not quite so stark.

    Thank you all.

    I quite liked the black back stitching Roz, in its place though. Most of my kits are quite old from QVC but have noticed in a couple the back stitching is very dark brown rather than black.
