Yellow Spotty Retro card

I made this to enter into the Friday Sketch Challenge number 49.

I was inspired by the adverts for the new Marc Jacob perfume - I saw these fabulous yellow and black spots on a cover at the entrance to Debenhams, and thought they would make an amazing background for a card.

I made this one using some free papers and stamps I got recently from a magazine - free stuff is always the best!  I love the retro feel of it.

I printed a sheet of black and yellow spotted paper (I designed it on craft artist 2), then inked the edges in distress ink before matting on black card.  I cut out the elements from a background paper, and stamped the lady onto white card, and a scrap of yellow and black to paper piece together for her swimming costume and bow, and decoupaged the bow on the costume for depth.  I then coloured her in using Spectrum noir markers. Finished off with a few gems as per the sketch - and another unique card has been finished!
