Emerald Eyes Katie --- In A Sweet Pea Dream --- Bling It Up --- Challenge # 17

Hello again,
   For this week's challenge I decided to use the breathtaking image "Katie" from Elaine Cox. I just think she is gorgeous even before you do any coloring to her.  Now on to the details.
~ The Details~
I decided to do my image in greens with the background in purple to make it pop.  I stamped Katie in Staz-On -Forest Green ink.  I did my usual coloring with my shimmer chalks and watercolor pencils.  I used Art Institute Glitter in  #45 - Apple,  #95 - Summer Sea,  #161 - Palo Verde and Amy's Magic Glitter in #710 - Key Lime and Mica D'lites in Jade.  Then I added the pearlescent papers and set up my pattern and finished with all the rhinestone bling. Hope you like my sparkly Katie creation and thanks for taking the time to look ;)
