A commissioned card

I was asked to make a 60th Birthday card for my friend's sister.

The outline of the original stamped image (sent to me by Viv) was trim down and then coloured with prisma's. The white background was inked with blue, green and yellow chalk, blended, and then lacquered. I was really pleased with how this mottled effect turned out - something I had not tried before, but will again.

Cream linen cardstock
Papers from HOTP , CB Swiss Dots, Nesties and corners
Ribbon and gems from stash
