Siren Song

This month's challenge theme at Aurora Wings is 'Inspired by Music'. The inspiration for my card is
Siren Song (Bat for Lashes). I used the beautiful Siren image, coloured with copics and  glitter gel pens. I wanted the scene to have an eerie atmosphere in keeping with the story, the music and the image. After all a siren is no Disney mermaid! Luring sailors to a watery grave isn't very pleasant behaviour.
I kept my design simple to keep focus on this gorgeous image, there is a fair amount of texture though from the embossed vellum, liquid pearls, ribbon and the fibre-y stuff I've matted it onto.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

AMAZING, Chris! Gorgeous coloring and the layout is perfectly dark and mysterious. That die cut wave gives such fabulous movement. Giggling at the "not very pleasant behavior" comment. Ya think? Thanks so much for joining our Inspired by Music Challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD

Chris, this is gorgeous. I actually have this digi, but the complexity of it, scares me a bit. I love what you have done with it and you have encouraged me to maybe take the plunge on it. Thank you joining us at SheepSki and good luck with your entry. Hugs Gail DT
