Eleanor Praying in Monotones

It is coming up to my Mother In laws birthday and she will be the ripe young age of 80 so I need to get my thinking cap on for a card for her and I thought I’d start with this one.

It’s not just Eleanor that's praying because I’m doing some praying of my own that I’m as good as my Mother In Law when I hit 80 years of age.

Eleanor Praying by Just Inklined is such a gorgeous image that I think she may just be what I need.

Coloured with Copic Markers and blended with Pan Pastels.


I added a touch of elegance with a real silk swatch of material and lace and ribbon from Ribbon Carousel and a gorgeous button from Dainty Paperie 


Do you think this will do the trick?

The vintage look of this card is very appealing. And the embellishments accent it so nicely.
