It's all in the details....

ching-chou kuik's Dark Sirene

I seriously thought this card might never be finished... the details defied me.. over and over again. The image was a dream to color ~ it was started with Copics and finished with Prismas. I love the way Prismas lend themselves to subtle shading and soft shadows. The trouble all started when the image was finished.. what to put it on and how to tie it all together without overshadowing the beauty of ching-chou kuik's Dark Sirene. It's seems to have all worked out though I am not totally committed to the card design I had to finish it so I could move on! Do you ever have issues like me? lol!

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead! Smiles ~ Brandi
