It has been raining here in Florida for 2 days straight ... perfect for staying in and crafting ;) I finished the image I was working on for a wonderful friend who just had a brand new healthy baby boy. I thought this one from Diana Martin Studio was perfect it is titled " Garden of Nautilus Mermaid". I love how she captured the love between the mother and baby. You can find more of her great images and artwork here http://www.etsy.com/shop/DianaMartinStudio?ref=seller_info. Now for the details.
First I sprayed the image with some fixative because I noticed that even though I am using HP ink it was still bleeding a little ... but I do a lot of blending so that could have something to do with it. I colored the image with my pearlescent chalks and colored pencils blending well. After that I applied my glitter colors. I didn't pay attention to the colors I used in this one I just grabbed quite a few different ones from my glitter stash. I did use the smooch accents for the bottom of the scene and the shells and her jewelry. I added half pearls and rhinestones to her hair and jewelry to finish the image. I layered several different papers (the light green one I made with my tattered angels sprays) and put some ribbon with flowers behind the image for this card. The little plaque on the bottom says "I will love you forever" I thought this went well and finished the card off nicely. Hope you like it and thanks for looking at my latest glittery creation ;)
