I used an image from Fairy Tangles called "Forget Me Nots", hence the Post Title, isn't she gorgeous? I coloured with Copic Markers, adding shading and detail with Prismacolor pencils... my usual (and favourite) way of colouring. I added some glitter with Stickles and Viva Liquid Pearl "pearls" to her hair.
The image was cut with a Spellbinders oval die, the gold frame cut using Spellbinders Oval Florals die. The sentiment was computer generated, printed on my laser printer then foil-embossed using my laminator and Deco Foil.
The lovely background paper is actually left over from the wrapping paper I used to wrap my DIL's present - it is really good quality and worked well... so well I went back to the stall I bought it from and bought some more!
I finished the inside of the card along the same lines as the outside, as I usually do :-)
