Guan Yin - my special goddess

I made this card for the friend who is opening her new shop tomorrow. It is just to wish her well, so I hope she likes it. It is a shop about spiritual things, incense, crystals, healing arts etc. So, I thought Guan Yin might help her get off to a good start.

The central image , and the first layer backing paper, are from Joanna Sheen's Oriental Dreams CD - an all-time fav for me!! For the other backing piece, I started with a sheet of semi-gloss paper and printed the Hobby Arts circular best wishes with versamark. I embossed with clear ep then began adding colour. I used dried marigold, old paper, shabby shutters and brushed corduroy, onto my heat sheet, spritzed with water and swooshed the paper through the inks. The overprinting was done using the same colours. Some white peel-offs and a Chinese coin, from my stash, complete the piece. Thanks for looking...
