The enlarged scan of the ATC
The photo of the ATC - again much enlarged
This took all morning to make - a lot of intricate work involved but hard to see on the images.
The backing paper was stamped all over with an 'Imagine' quote. Then, with a pen, I dabbed tiny golden dots all over the paper. Then embossed it.
The fairy is made up of different pictures which I have coloured with luminous pens. The fairy's body is covered in gold - and doesn't looked lined as it does in the images.
The hand she is resting on is a stamped image from Kath - thank you for those - which I have coloured and manicured!
The whole ATC has had a couple of layers of embossing put onto it, to give it a dimpled and textured effect.
This has been photographed - both these images are very much bigger than the ATC!
And this is the scanned image.
Neither shows how it looks in 'real life' - much better.
It is softer looking - and is embossed which gives it a lovely texture.
The 'lady' started off as a nude fairy with long flowing hair - and rather volumptous!
I did some drastic 'plastic surgery' with my knife, and she ended up with having a helmet put on her head, some clothes, and I drew in a spear!
