So, here is my project for this weeks new challenge over at The Pencil Case ...
I have used a Nikky Burnett image, "Esmeralda" coloured with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils and enhanced with white gel pen and GraphIt silver glitter ShakeIt pen.
Skin: gold ochre, brown ochre, venetian red and prussian blue
Hair: light orange, dark orange, prussian blue and dark sepia
I hope you can see where my original idea was taking me, as I have tried to colour her to look as if she was a mermaid ... but least said about the original background, the better! I have placed the image on to a framed panel and put the sentiment in to her hand. I have created a simple heart background using a Stampin' Up and X-cut punches.
Think that's everything and off to have a lie down now as exhausted from all the failed attempts ...
