Dark Lilies - Ching-chou Kuik

Just for a change I made a card for fun.  I have used a Ching-chou Kuik image called Dark Lilies that I think is absolutely gorgeous. She has such soulful eyes.

She is straight cut and layered up on 3 different pastel mirror boards.  The corner is from Tattered lace. The backing paper, ribbon, heart slider and gems are from my stash.

She is coloured with promarkers and I added white gel pen for more definition.  I glazed her eyes with glossy accents and then stickles to the bird and flower stamens.

I created the background around her with my Craftwell E-brush, still waiting to get the Promarker attachment for it, but they are planning on releasing one. You get 3 Spectrum Noir pens with the brush fortunately a blue and a green which I blended together on the paper. I totally adore this tool and used Pebeo Drawing Gum to mask her off before spraying. This then just rubs off to reveal the image, much quicker than making a mask. (available from Crafters Companion)

The inside does match the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look
