Loreley for AWNB

Wow!  This image is beautiful - it's by Chris at CS Designs.  I decided to design this card as if Loreley is looking into an aquarium. 

The glass affect was created with diamond glaze.  I brushed a couple of layers only on the face portion.  It's a little hard to see in the photos, but I think you can get the idea of what it looks like.  It's quite amazing that it looks so much as if she's looking through glass.  The rest of the image is cut out and then added back to the image.

The card turned out fairly simple, but I don't think she needs much.  She's striking all on her own.  It's time for a new challenge at Art With No Boundaries.  Be sure to check the blog for the wonderful creations and all the details on the new challenge, the rhythm of the sea.  Thanks for stopping by and  I hope to see you there!


  1. Looking into an aquarium! Could anything be more mesmerizing? I don't think so! Lori, you've certainly captivated me with the fantastic illusion. she's gorgeous. :)

    What a really awesome inspiration for the new challenge.
    OHHH, btw...I nearly fell out of my chair when I read your last email..that was hilarious. HA! Sorry it's taken so long to write back, hubster came home from overseas and so I haven't been on the computer too much. Although, I do have one project ready for the "thing." ..WOO HOO.
    Have a great night.

  2. She's gorgeous, Lori. I love the colouring on this image. Loreley is so vibrant and the shells, starfish, and water just pop. Great idea to creat the glass effect. It looks real and adds great detail to the aquarium effect.
