This week's challenge over at Aurora Wings is "Say it with Flowers".
I had so much fun with the little Pierrot Sprite card than I made here that when I was looking for an image to use for this challenge this beautiful one just seemed to call out to me. This is Harlequinade, an older image from Mitzi I believe, but absolutely gorgeous.
I used the same digi paper to mask her onto before adding a black border and printing her out. I gave the mask a little bit of definition with my shading and used a 2-tone look for the larger diamonds to make it look more vibrant. I then used those 2 tones in the main flowers, but separately this time. Lots of shine with the clear gelly roll pen and some rhinestones finished her off. I think this is such a theatrical image and thought the outline of rhinestones resembled stage lights - or maybe that's just my imagination running wild ;)
From this angle you can see the shine from the glitter pen better, but sadly the other colours appear more washed out. I love the feeling that her eyes are hiding but giving you a piercing stare at the same time. More of my imagination coming into play perhaps!
