2nd Floor Challenge - White Cardstock

This gal is the latest resident in my art journal.  She is sketched with NeoColor Crayons - straight up - no water used to dilute the color and has washi tape and torn corrugated cardboard accents.
My favorite touch, however, comes from the glass beads - can you see how luminescent they are?  Love the texture they add. . .
 I applied with a palette knife directly onto the paper but an old credit card or even a scrap of cardboard would do the same thing.  
The current 2nd floor challenge is to use white cardstock which isn't that much of a stretch for me but the addition of two types of texture and not adding any other shading was a bit out of my comfort zone.  She has a rather unfinished look to her that I find pleasing . . .

Wow, love the look of that glass bead gel. Did you apply that before or after the sketch? She does look quite finished to me!
