Left Of Center's Relaunch - anything goes!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a good day! today I have for you a card made using Eiglassing's Nimue Skyclad
 Those of you that don't know Eiglassing's work will also not know that the creator is a fellow DT of mine over here at the L.O.C and a friend of mine, to boot!
I love her witches and was really nervous of creating something that she would deem fitting..luckily I showed her what I had made first, and it passed muster! She also made my watermark too!

This card is fairly Clean and Simple, and the main thing that took any time was letting the backing paper dry...
I used my marbling inks for this, floated on water with a drop of washing up liquid , in a baking tray (shhh do NOT tell my husband..i'm not meant to be using household items for my crafting ;)  )
I used blacks, blues, and metallic blue, silver and gold. once dry and cut down to the correct size, I backed it on some dark blue pearlescent paper, cut the moon on my scan n cut, and also used the scan n cut to fussy cut the image that I had coloured using promarkers (using the direct  feature where NO cut information is stored in the machine) 

the moon was glued onto the backing with anita's tacky glue, and i popped the image up on some little 3d double sided foam pads to add a little dimension.  I then took some gold mica powder and rubbed it in with my fingertip to mimic moon beams, and dusted very gently along her skin to make it 'glow' ..unfortunately, I cannot make it sparkle in the picture, so you will kjust have to take my word for it!
the finishing touch was adding a few sparkly star shaped gems to the sky , and adding it all to a 6x6 tentfold card ...
