Dreaming of Spring

Unky's colouring of this image was staggering and inspired me to buy the image.  If you don't know it, it's Aurora - What Matters from The East Wind.  I wanted it to be the main focus of the card so I've kept the card fairly simple.

She's coloured with ProMarkers in bright spring colours.  the main challenge I found with this was to try and make some areas of the flowers and mist see through.  Here's a close up of the image.

The image is mounted onto plain black card stock to frame the image.  I've used design papers from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs - Father Knows Best and Lili of the Valley/NitWit Collections - Country Meadow.  I've also used some more black card stock.

The only other thing I've used are some pale gold self adhesive gems.

Happy crafting
