Hand painted background card

This card was hand painted. First with dye inks for the background, I used my Nestabilities to layer up the shapes, then watercolours for the collaged dye cut, I used Gesso over this to tone down the effect. I edged with gold leaf flakes. The snowflakes sit on some stiff ribbon. It turned out really well!
