Welcome once again - this weeks release from McMahon Five that I have illustrated is a vintage image Sisters

The image was coloured using chalks, and mounted on some medium blue paper to define it.

It is a beautiful image and a joy to use.

I had wanted a paper that did not detract from the image, and found this in a pad of paper by Kaisercraft.  it is very subtly coloured, but has a glorious embossed surface on it.

The lace is ecru IRL and the ribbon and pearls a rich cream colour.

      The card was finished with some more pearls in the corners.

And some punched  butterflies and pearls flying off the top corner of the image.
