A face of two halves

I started colouring this on my lunch break at work and showed a couple of pictures (first one) and (second one) to show stages of development on the Inky Pinkies Facebook as part of their what are you colouring today (Wednesday).  So having finished the actual card now it's time to share it again.

The image is Pink Rose and Shimmer Chiffon from The EastWind.  It's been coloured with a combination of ProMarkers and Copics.  I've then cut it out in a diamond shape with a Spellbinders die.  Distressed the edges with some Tim Holtz ink and added some Stampendous embossing enamel around the image adges.

The image makes me think of two halves so I tried to imply this in my actual back ground in the card.  The papers are from Lili of the Valley.  I've used some black card stock and then some black slef adhesive gems.

I've very much kept the image as the focus of the card.
