Icy Snow Queen

I have written and deleted this post I cannot begin to tell you how many times! I have had this image forever and a day; however, I love the image and color it every winter. I usually color it in the low Ns and Cs, but I decided this year to try something a little different. So I was torn between sharing it and not sharing it. Sharing it because it is new but not sharing it because I have colored it and shared it before many times but with the colors I just mentioned. 

Not ever in blues and... WOW... what a differnce colors make! I started with the low Bs and I kinda liked it. This is Icy Snow Queen from Aurora Wings on Etsy. I colored the images with Copic markers and also added some sparkle with Stampendous micro glitter over some Zig 2-Way glue and Liquid Pearls in White Opal, Robin's Egg and PewterThe snow flake die cut is from Paper Smooches and cut out of some scraps of iridescent paper. Beads are from my stash and I mounted all the images onto scraps of shimmering specialty papers from my stash as well. 

Skin: E13, E11, E01, E00, R20

Blue: B21, B00, B000, 0

So I upped the numbers a bit to see what would happen. I was completely prepared to toss the thing if I did not like it, but I was surprised to find that I did! I only dabbed the micro glitter on the big gem in the middle of her forehead and stuck with White Opal on the Liquid Pearls for these two.
Blues: B93, B91, B01, B00, B000, 0

So then I went bold! LoL It was really scary for me! Again, I was completely prepared to toss the thing if it did not look like I "Ema-gined" it! LoL It looked so much better!
