I just can't get enough of her!

I don't know what it is about her, but I just can't get enough of
Marie Antoinette!
Aurora Wings has a stunning Marie that I colored to resemble a zombie of
the highest regard. She was quite a remarkable result of Copics, a googly eye,
and a deviant mentality. All mine. You can see her for yourself right here

I have another Marie image that was drawn by one of my favorite artists,
Abigail Larson. She is quite a talented dark artist, who has done some
images for SBS, which is where I got the image. 
I have had her stashed away for months, and am thrilled to have finally
brought her to life....

Isn't she lovely? 
Oh, so tragically undead, and lovely.
I was inspired by the current Left Of Center challenge 
of black, white, and one other color.
I chose to use my (other) favorite color, yellow green

I used Lime Green Stickles for some sparkle on the oval frame,
and the die cut leaves. I managed to get a decent photo of the glitter.
It's harder to capture on film than you'd think. 

I used some definition dp (from parts unknown), and was able to arrange it
so that the word and definition for scar, is visible under her portrait.
I thought that was kind of cool.

She was a blast to color, and a challenge to keep her in shades of black
and yellow green. I used Warm Grays for her dress and facial shading, 
Toner Grays for her hair, and Neutral Grays for the background.
All of the greens are G09, YG17, YG25, YG03, YG01, YG00, and YG0000.   

I am rather proud of this one.

I'd like to show her off, and enter her in the following challenges:
