ABC T for Two

Our challenge today at ABC is T for Two. We would like to see two of something on your creations. We are sponsored by Aurora Wings and I have used their lovely image Desert Rose for my card, and my two are two different colours.

T for Two no shimmer
I coloured her with copics and when I was finished I went over her clothes with some plain mica powder dissolved in water to give a shimmer, which I know you can’t see here so there will be another pic below with the shimmer. But this is a more accurate depiction of the actual colour. I also coloured her sword with a silver gel pen.

The background is Ripe Persimmon, and Spiced Marmalade and Dusty Concord DI’s through a Rebecca Baer Stencil called Moroccan Vine because I wanted to give the impression of an Arab Palace. The archway was actually a Tando greyboard arch, but when I had spent ages colouring my girl I realised that the arch was too big for the design. So I scanned it into my PC for the shape and then printed it smaller and cut it out. I coloured it, and the mat behind the stencilled area with Maya Gold paint in Violet. I coloured some corner and border gems to match and used the borders to adorn my archway and the corners just to finish the card. I added one small gem to her belly button!
