Here she comes :0)

You'd better watch out Smushallaum has got a new pair of wings folks
 Hi and welcome to my Stampotique Guest designer card, I have been facinated by Daniel Torrente's wierd and wonderful characters for years now, this was an ideal opportunity for me to use one of my favourites!
Sorry Sarn!!! :0)
I apologise for the play on words, not very clever but it tickled my fancy, snigger LOL
Smushallaum has been given new wings and has left the water, heaven knows how much havoc she will cause! She is rightly proud of her wings they have new shiny bits;0)
I coloured her with Dylusions inks, fabulous colours but I have smothered microglaze (clear matt professional wax that protects invisibly) all over her to protect the inks from light. Having spent a while painting her I don't want the elements to take anything away:0)
Thanks for stopping by, Gay xxx

You must be very good friends now with Smushhallaum, because you gave her the opportunity to open up her world.
Who wouln't like that.
And what girl doesn't like a little bit of glitter in life.
Can hear her singing above me:"I believe I can fly, I believe I can touch the sky.....".
You gave her facsinating colours, she became therefor a beauty, water U thinking??? ;-)
Love Gery
