Cream Marie

This card is for a swap in the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group.  The theme required the use of only shades of cream.  To give the Marie image a crackled look, I used Ranger Crackle paint and Grafix Rub-Onz Transfer Paper.  Click here to see the tutorial.

Utterly amazing! It looks so old, which I love. The cream tone is perfect for this. It reminds me of the Nancy Drew game "Treasure in the Royal Tower." I love Marie!
