It's an Illusion!

Hello everyone!  It is time for another challenge at the Li'l Patch of Crafty Friends.  As always it is anything goes and we have three wonderful sponsors for this challenge.

I had the amazing Blue Sea Illusion from Ching-Chou Kuik to work with.  I think these images are gorgeous, but I have not colored one until now!  They are so intimidating!  I colored her in all blue-green tones with Copics and cut her out using the Silhouette Cameo.  The large blue gem on her forehead started out yellow, but I used a Copic marker to change the color.  I decided on an easel card.  Until recently, I had never made an easel card.  This is my  second one.  They are so easy!  Here is a close up of the bottom part of the easel.  They are a little more difficult to take pictures of.

I had a lot of fun making this project!  Our sponsors for this challenge are:

Ching-Chou Kuik

Prize of 1 image

Flat Friends Boutique

Prize of 5 images


Fresh Brewed Designs

Prize of 3 images

I can't wait to see all of your gorgeous makes!  Good luck to you all!
