Thank you Michelle for such a great challenge, I had so much fun making this card.
I made a huge 'happy' mess making the background. Spritzed Dylusions ink spray and water on a sheet of al foil*, swished the cardstock through it. There was still a lot of liquid to mop up, so I slapped a bit of gesso on the foil (because I can't find my molding paste) then stenciled a bit of a brick wall and leaves.
I used a gold cord for her headpiece, tied knots each side then unravelled the threads.
*I use kitchen aluminium foil instead of a craft mat, cheap as chips and I chuck it out when finished. Thank you for looking.

As always Susie I LOVED reading your 'how I did it' - makes me smile every time. The colours and textures on your card are wonderful, and I keep finding more to peep at! Tin foil has to be recycled here so I would have to wash it before discarding!
