Image is called "wild 8" and because one wolf seemed too lonely, I added mirror image to keep one company, printed it and coloured.
Wolf is a beautiful animal, one of the most beautiful I know. (At least when they are featured on the photos, pictures and framed)
Frame is handmade with old fashion ruler, scoring board, scissors and couple of test runs. And 12x12 cardstock and glue and metallic embellishments. By the way, beveled frame is NOT as difficult to make as you might think. You just need to get it sorted in your head. Well, I took my time. :D
Eyes are highlighted with Glossy Accent to make them glow and it looks good.
Background is shaded only with a bit of metallic rub wax(?) or maybe it is chalk, no idea! Bottom part with bronze and natural white and upper part with two shades of blue. Sort of earth and sky.
