Pearl Lotus Syren by Lacy Sunshine

Happy New Year's Eve!!!
Today is the start of a new challenge at
 Challenge: All Things New
I am sharing a NEW TECHNIQUE using
 Using my Copic markers- I colored the background.  I wanted to give the illusion of a 
sunset and the water...then blended them.  Since Copic's are alcohol based- I used 
a some rubbing alcohol from my medicine cabinet and some Q-Tips to "pick up" some
ink.  It is very simple and effective- just dab as much or as little of the tip in the alcohol and dab it
on the around and see what works for you.
 I also added some Glossy accents in the water and the globe in her hand- Love how this effect
looks.  Gives a lot of texture and depth. Another NEW thing on this card is my embossing folder.
