For my background in this card I went back to an old favourite -Marvy Metallic Markers and water on glossy card. I used red, green and gold markers for this piece, and although the gold dominates, it has a variegated effectg that I hope can be seen in the photo.

I stamped with an Indigo Blu text stamp, then the bird stamp - it's a UM and I have no idea what make. I used a Docrafts Triboss folder , sanded and added 3 gems.
