Oriental lady

I made this for a lady we've known for many years whose family live in Japan.
I racked my brain for ideas for her birthday card & came up with this.
I masked the image & sponged the sun (2 colours), then masked the sun &
sponged the background & the backing card with 2 shades of ink. Edges inked.
Dovecraft papers (oriental)
A very simple idea really - hope she likes her card

tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave

Oooooooh Noreen! This is so striking and elegant! I love the silhouette image and the lovely colours you've use. The papers are beautiful and perfect for the image. Gorgeous work!
I must thank you for pointing out that chocolate does indeed come from a bean.....I have easily achieved the recommended 5 a day now!
