Merci

This is a standard A-2 card 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". The background paper is double sided "My Mind's Eye" and was cut in strips and I used both sides. The medallion was done with a cuttlebug embossing folder on 80lb. white cardstock and painted with Copic Markers and the Airbrush System. I then tore around the image. The stamped image is an old PSX stamp and I used misc. ribbon. The gold highlights were done with PearlEx using alcohol as my medium and spray fixative as my binder. Happy Saturday, Hugs
