A bit grungy...

It was Jo's birthday recently and this is what I ended up making.


The background, bees and flowers are coloured with Dylusions sprays.  I've used a mixture of Jo's stamps, Dylusion and Stampotique stamps and a grungy alphabet although the company name escapes me at the moment!  I've used some gold UTEE round the edge and the face and her wings are stamped on vellum.

I haven't heard of those sprays but love the way you have blended the colours, and the gold UTEE gives a lovely bit of texture. Your friend will love it.

Fantastic! I bet this made Jo smile. Love those Dylusion sprays and bought some at the Harrogate papercraft show and a few more on a visit to Dyan's shop. I love the soft chalky finish they give. I really like the way you married the different stamps together to make the girl. Great idea! A total success as far as I'm concerned.

Fab card - love that image. The pink and orange are "hot" colours and there was a lot of that mix about at CHA this year so you are bang on with your colour choice.
All I can say is "lucky Jo"! x
