Text!

The DCM theme this weekend is to include text in your work. I've made this as a silver wedding anniversary card for some friends - the grey is silver!!
Again you cannot see, because of the scan, but the frame has been diamond glazed, and is therefore raised and shiny (and a little cracked because I tried to work with it before it was fully set!).
I used sponging and watercolouring techniques using purple and blue from the Bouquet set of colours
