Katerina Koukiotis's Dreaming of Aquamarine Tides



Today I chose this stamp from Sweetpea stamps details below which was quite a challenge for me!.   As it turned out it was quite difficult to get the definition I wanted.  Having played with the image for hours decided to keep her almost icy using blues and greys in the skin tones and adding stickles to her lashes to add that wet look..
