Citrus Martini

Can I just say, that I adore the Man's Ruin image?  It is so wonderful for almost any sort of celebration.  This time it just happens to be a birthday, but what party couldn't use a girl in a martini glass.  It would sure liven things up.  In this case I didn't think the skull was quite what I wanted so I masked it out and added a bow.  I tend to add whatever I want here, shamrocks, skulls, flowers, maybe an Easter egg next?

For this card I cut out the girl in the glass and covered the glass with crystal effects.  It gave the glass a super shiny appearance that just does't come through in the picture.  It was so much like glass the it cracked right across the girls buttocks. (Me thinks someone needs to loose a few pounds.)  I colored and cut out an extra leg to pop over the top of the glass to give more dimension.  I love layers and so this card has more than a few. I colored the girl's skin with copics and the rest withs Prisma pencils and osm. I added loads of bling added or I wouldn't be the Sparkly Engineer.
