ABC Challenge M for Magical

Over at ABC this time we want to see your Magical creations – Wizards, Witches, Faeries, Mythical Creatures ….

We are sponsored by Stamp and Create with a fabulous $25 gift certificate for their store.

M Main No WM

I have used Boo and Snookie from Emerald Faeries and coloured them with promarkers. The background papers are from Bearly Mine and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Below are two different versions of the image in close up, the second being alrtificially lit so you can see the glitter on the wings and and on the snail’s shell because the light was wrong to capture them in the main image shot.

M Image Lighter

The colour is definitely more the first image, but that didn’t show the sparkly bits.

I made the swirl from a DooHickey die, having first laid down some double sided self adhesive film over the blue paper before I cut it out. I then added those tiny micro beads to the shape afterwards. They are little monsters. I put my image down and it started moving across the desk all on it’s own. Eerie, lol, until I realised that I had spilled just a few of those micro beads and the image was slithering across the top of them, much like the snail might have if he was real!
