Mixed Media Stash-recovery

EDIT 26/12/2014: 
This is now participating in Clear it Out's challenge "2014 Favourite work" :)

******************************************************************************


I had this lovely image from Aurora Wings, A Dark Undercurrent, and I really wanted to colour it up in a bigger than card size. I had this old shadowframe (with a pasty old image in it), so I painted it over, and set to work with my copics. 

 As said, my image is AW's gorgeous mermaid :) Love her to bits! :D She's coloured with more Copics than I care to remember this late (a), and detailed with a gelpen, some liquid pearls, and some general doodles. I sketched in the wreck, and some turtles (inspired by Mitzi's SeaTurtle Kiss turtles), alongside some seaweed.
Close-up of my mermaid. 
 And my finished Shadow Frame. The frame itself was painted white, before i embossed it with FranTage Shaby White. From the deepest corners of my stash came: Seashells, metallic prima flowers, some bottles, branches, and the metal watch-face. Other items on the shoppinglist are: WOC flowers, Prima resin bird, Prima pearl-bling, beads, and a T. Holtz metal plaque.

Laila, this is amazing! Love how you've colored Mitzi's fabulous image, and the background you've added has me totally blown away. You are an artist in the truest sense of the word.

OMG this is absolutely stunning! I love absolutely everything about it. I am really sad, therefore, that I cannot consider it for a prize or top three spot as we have a 15 total challenge rule. I do hope you will share your talent with us again though, but with a few less other challenges.

Thanks for sharing in our World of Fantasy challenge.
