A Vintage Wish

Hello there! I haven't blogged for a bit as been on holiday, but I'm home now so it's back to the grindstone... lol

Do you ever start colouring an image with a card or style in mind then it goes somewhere else completely?   I can't even remember what I originally had in mind for this mermaid, but as I don't usually go for green I decided I would for a change. Once she was finished I thought she would actually work really well on a vintage-style card.  Of course I still had some of the DP I bought on a whim in Michaels, so it turned out really well to use some up here. 

Product List:
  • Digital image 'Magic Wish' by Ching-Chou Kuik
  • Kraft card 
  • Vintage-style DP (Michaels)
  • Paper flower (Michaels)
  • Ribbon - sheer and satin
  • Lace (Etsy)
  • Tim Holtz vintage embellishments 
  • Tonic Tim Holtz paper distresser
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Sienna, Caramel, Sandstone, Pastel Beige, Cinnamon, Moss, Pear, Lime, Pine, Forest, Apple
  • Sakura Gelly Roll, gold
