Hi there, how are you doing? I seem to have gremlins again with a leaky radiator, a poorly pc and I also think I've heard the patter of little paws in the house... I think I may have a little mousy visitor! I do hope not as I love mice and hate to think of having to evict them. I didn't have chance to investigate thoroughly with all the chaos of the leak so I'll have to look for evidence when I get home from work. If its not one thing its another but at least I'm not bored lol.
Anyway on to today's card which features the stunning Princess Oceana from Michelle Perkett Studio, I adore this image and I've coloured her loads of times but I thought I'd give her black hair this time for a change. You can find Princess Oceana in Michelle's Etsy Store here.
I've coloured her with my promarkers and added some dimension with viva pearl and gloss pens and some tiny sea shells from my stash. She's matted on some blue mirri card. I've created the background using Cosmic Shimmer spray in Midnight Blue and some silver firework ink, sprayed on white card and then clingfilmed and left to dry. I love this technique, its perfect for watery or icy backgrounds and looks sooooo sparkly and shimmery in real life. Once the background was dry I stamped border and and corner stamps from Chocolate Baroque and embossed with seafoam white EP. The flowers and gems are from my stash.
