Gymnast Newspaper Card

This card is A5 in size and is made using white linen effect card.
Gymnast Card
My sister asked me to make a card for a photographer called Eileen Langsley who she met during one of her volunteer sports events and who had given her a copy of her beautiful book Gymnastics in Perspective
Gymnast decoupage
My sister gave me a few ideas and I worked round them.  I just love the gymnasts, which I I found on this wonderful free clip art site 
Gymnast card 2
The images are  free if used for a non commercial purposes and are attributed to the artist Phillip Martin. It really is worth a look but please check the regulations first before using any of the available images
Gymnast card 1
All I have done is make them up into simple decoupage layers to add a little texture and dimension.  The Visa logo was added to  reflect Eileen’s frustration with background advertising boards which often get in the way when she is taking her stunning pictures.
