Birthday

Good Morning. I was looking through some cards stored on my pc last night, and found this card I made for a cousin who is a Red Hat lady. The stamp was borrowed, so don't know the manufacturer. I think the hardest part of coloring this image, was trying to get a translucent effect on the shawl where it drapes over her arm. The diecut was done with Spellbinders, and the lacy trim was an MS punch that had been embossed with a C/B dots folder. I used Red Bazzill for the cardbase, and used a big Flourish stamp, versamark, clear embossing powder. I was rather pleased with the reds on the hat & glove and if you look closely, there's some purple in the flowers too! I don't think I've posted this previously. Enjoy. Have a wonderful day.

WOW Mary, this card is amazing!!! I don't know how you colored this image like this but it is stunning! How did you get her shaw to look transparent on her arm??? And how did you get this image cut with the SB and not cut her hat???? I love that image, but your coloring is what brought it to life! WOW!!!!
