Ska vi ta en fika
From the Fika Collection I used: Chaite,En kopp te-BS, Mandelkaka-BS, Sockerkaka-BS.& Tva froknar-BS
Here are some closeups of detail:

This is how I achieved the Seahorse....
I used the Seahorse & a seashell. I drew on the seashorse,where I wanted to use the liquid pearls....
I then painted both pieces with LuminArte (Stargazer)
Once the LuminArte dried I applied liquid pearls. I used platinum & lavender lace....
I then applied a thick coat of  clear rock candy crackle.I let that dry,then sprayed it with 2 coats of acrylic sealer,because what ever is in the LuminArte,makes the crackle want to lift,but also gave the Seahorse a scaley look,that I liked.so you really need to spray on a sealer,or you will loose all the crackle.I then inked the edges,&added bling & pearls

I am looking forward, to see what you, come up with,with this months sketch....Rachelle
