Fading Love (Blog Candy)

Here's a stunning new image from artist ching-chou kuik called Fading Love (Plate #199). I used a mono-tone theme on this card, but in a round about kind of way since I widened the color family to include all tones of blue. I also added just a tiny tint of green in there, to help tie the blue green and the rich blues together.
Here's a close up of this wonderful stamp, if you go to the store, you will see how differently she is colored by the artist, with black hair and a red dress on.

Wow Holley! This is just beautiful. The image is lovely and your coloring is superb. Love the bling you added and the white lace thing. Is it from a border punch? I really like it, whatever it is.
Hugs, Rosalee
