I was paired with lovely Monika at a recent swap. She sent me a youtube video of how the card I received was made. Just to say - I followed her method step by step with totally different results. Color makes such a difference. And I am on one of my colorless, pale moods again. I get bouts when I need to clean my inner color palette and just make something very pale and monochrome.
This pair of girls - twins by the appearance of it - really intrigued me. There is the sun and there is the moon, you know what I mean? If you just see the moon you think she's pretty, but as soon as the sun appears moon fades.

Victorian came up with this idea of 'facial profiling', reading the character out of a person's face. (I know I have been referring to Victorians a lot recently. They were such a fascinating bunch.)
I remember thinking I should really explore the good-bad dichotomy a bit more and make the second pair opposite: the pretty girl would be bad and the other good. But I really don't know how it happened, it must have been my unconscious working - but now the pairs are the same: sun is good, moon is bad.

Simon Says: Add some shimmer
Steampunk challenge: Anything goes. I say this goes: it's the dark side of Victorian era, not dark in colors as Steampunk usually likes to do it, but dark in thought, and all the more eerie because of the light colors used.
