Green beauty

Make this gorgeous picture using IndigoBlu stamp Dianne, and Limor Circles. The frame has been stamped using Ragged Edges (from the Limor Webber/IndigoBlu range) and Crackleglaze Background.

The frame has been created using a combination of IndigoBlu paints, IndigoBlu Mask and stamped with black Versafine.

I've also used Distress Inks - Weathered Wood and Peeled Paint.

The paint colours used are Frosty Sky, Vodka Martini and Emerald City (all IndigoBlu English Cottage Acrylic Paints).

I really love this image! It's so big and dramatic, with the flowing hair, which is what inspired me to make the drips of paint flow in the same direction. I wanted to give it an underwater feel, and the Limor Circles helped add to the illusion of bubbles under water.

I've added some UTEE to this which has given it a lovely shine, with a few bumps, bubbles and crackles - can't say it was intentional, but it sure has a nice effect!

Oh and if you look at that frame, you might recognise it as the cardboard frames you get when you receive your child's school photo!

All in all, I'm really pleased with this image.

I hope you like this as much as I do.
