A different twist

I decided to go ahead and make this my third entry into the the Stamps by Aurorawings "Anything Goes" blog challenge.  I did a little outside of the box, well inside the box in this instance thinking.  I created this as gift for a very dear friend using the image "Owl Masquerade" printed in a 5 x 7 size.  I used Copics to color the image, I used E000, E00, E11, and E04 for her skin, E40, E41, E42, and E43 for the owl, Y23, Y26 and YR27 for her hair, BG18 and BG49 for the mask.  I used gelly roll pens for the masks to add some bling.  I taped black lace behind the image then taped the image on that, glued a small strand of pearls to frame her in then used some embellishments for the small boxes.  To finish the piece I used Alene's tacky glue and micro beads on the outside.

  3. Helen, this is so gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing your copic colors. I was going to ask you what you used for the owl!! I love it and the way you made something other than a card!!

  4. Helen, this is just stunning! I love that you've thought "Outside" (or inside) the box. Fabulous project. Thanks so much for joining our first challenge at Aurora Wings for a 3rd time. WooHoo! xxD
