This is a piece I did a while ago, and it’s still a favorite. I used the Glaze series of pens from Gelly Roll to make some of the borders really pop, and I had to mix the inks on the paper before they dried to get the colors I wanted.  The blending in particular was a huge hassle to get right, and filling in the large areas evenly with relatively small (and somewhat unpredictable) instruments wasn’t exactly easy, but I’m very pleased with the results.

This is one of my older pieces, but it’s still one of my favorites. I’m very pleased with how the color balance came out, and the dark blue curves from the Glaze pen really set off the shapes made with Metallic and Stardust beautifully. It was a lot of work, but well worth the effort.
