My Mum's Birthday Card

I am safe I don't think she even knows I have a blog! lol. I think I will have shocked her a little this year, I usually do something twee and cute, as I never have any other ideas, but since i started with atc's things have changed so she is in for a non-cute card this year just hope she likes it!.I used a clay mask and for the first time ever i added some hair, I like the way it has ended up, i used acrylics to paint her. The background was a piece of mountboard, that i covered with some mesh and foil, over these bits i painted to give texture, on the other bits i used some crackle glaze and black and bronze paint. I used to use crackle glaze tons when i was at college in many of my projects, and have had a bottle of it sat staring at me for months! finally its opened!, it all sits on a background of vellum covered in alcohol inks i love the effect they give on vellum, i used the colours rust and pitch black with some gold mixative.
I used some scrabble letters and rub ons over the top of them, to try and tie it in with the rest of the card, the words again are dynmo and i added some gems and ribbon.
