underwater crowning glory

I love aurora wings images, I'm not really into digital stamps but when I won some of these I just fell in love with Mitzi's images, have to say she can really draw faces which sadly many digital images seem to fail at doing,in my opinion anyway. I coloured this sea princess with promarkers and added some liquid pearls to her crown for a little added dimension and because it just felt they should be there.
I love how her hair just seems to be flowing in the water. I filled my area with colour and rounded the corners for a softer look.

I wanted to keep the image as the focus of my card so decided on a white square base card and instead of backing paper I decided to use some diecut flourishes for my backing of the image.

I cut them in some metallic card I have had for ages it has like an iridescent blue gold sheen and always reminds me of tropical seas well how I dream they would look never having been anywhere tropical. I added them to form a frame and randomly stuck some water drops to represent bubbles.

I know its not the best photo in the world but I guess you get the idea .

Lovely! I do like a die-cut flourish!!!! That metallic card looks beautiful and perfect with this 'watery' theme.

Gorgeous card, Julye! Love how you embellished the mermaid's headdress with liquid pearls - she looks wonderful! The swirly die cuts in the background create a beautifully abstract, yet recognizable, watery effect, which I love. The turquoise and aqua look beautiful in contrast to the orange in the starfish. Thank you for joining our ATG challenge at Aurora Wings, and thank you for your kind words on my digis! Mitzi xxx
