closer look at that frog.
This is my first wishrak mouse i have colored. I have to go through the envelopes to be certain who to thank for it, I don't know its real name, because I trimmed the image to fit the card and seen afterwards the writing on the back of it... ack, Colored with pencils, the water and bubbles have some stardust pen work on them. The wide organdy is unknown. The pp I found at Joann's today on the way home from Work. I went in with the intention to pick up a pack of 5x7 cards (that come with envelopes) and found they are all on sale (so 50 cards with envelopes for 5.99 is pretty good) then i found they had a big display of Die Cuts With a View pads of papers and this one is from the pad called luxury paper. its metallic and shimmery. the card base is Shimmery White. and this one is 5X7 in real life.
I think i have figured out the trick to catching the shimmer of the pen work, its not so much a tilting the card but tilting the way the light is hitting the card on the table...
so, next time you cannot get the shot you want try moving the light instead of the card.
