Was a bit busy last night creating and ran out of time to blog this.  So here goes :)

Over the new year I discovered the world of Chin-Chou Kuik.  The image I've done here is an absolutely gorgeous one called Once in a Blue Moon.

I've coloured it with ProMarkers but used a lot of grey and blues which I've blended out to give a soft misty feel.  Added to the image is some DecoArt Glitter to her hair and wings and some glossy accents to the water to make it shimmer.  You can probably see a bit better in this close up.

Papers are from Wild Rose Studio - Wedding Bells.  All the papers and the image have been distressed.

I wanted her to look like she was standing at the side of the river, hopefully I've achieved this by adding some foliage and ribbon.  The resin bird, organza rose ribbon, leaves and stamens (including the glossy accents) were all from The Ribbon Girl.

The final touch is some silver self adhesive gems that I got in Hobby Craft.

Hope you all like her
