Mixed Media background card (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

2nd and last card for today and it's made with one of my favourite artists' images - Hannah Lynn. I also used a pearl Jasmine laser flourish from Flourish with a Bling and embossed it with an embossing folder to see what would happen - the embossing folder was a fairly plain one, just lines but I like the effect it gave. In the background I used a mixture of distress inks in yellow, orange and green and added water in parts. I then added some gold sequins, liquid pearls and some clear dots (sorry I can't remember their name, will check later). I used blue, green and yellow copic markers on her eyes.
