One more Mythical Creature feature...

I thought she deserved to have a post all her own :)  This is the third card we'll be doing in Thursday's class.  L.O.V.E. her!

This image is Jeweled from Sweet Pea Stamps:


Isn't she lovely?   I ran out of time to foof up the background of the image, but the white sure sets it off, right?


I decided to give her a belly button :)  I thought it worked out.  Her tail was sooooooo much fun to color & try to get to look dimensional.  And I think her skin coloring worked beautifully.


I used Basic Grey's Jordan from the Olivia line, and Mellow Birch... two VERY different papers that paired perfectly for this image!  Blinginess of note:  webbed trim, sheer ribbon, pearls & glitter pen accents.

I'm entering this little lovely in the
In A Sweet Pea Dream - Bling it Up challenge,
and the Basic Grey - Mix & Match challenge.

What do you think?

Screaming a big, loud OMG!!! You colored her amazingly...the skin, ending that tail (I always goof the trailing off into white space - will study this for sure!) and her hair...everything is perfect. Barb you are so talented!!

Wish I could take one of your classes some time. Can't you find a business funded reason to come to California? I need a private tutor for my coloring.
