Louvre, here I come!

This is the card for one of my friend's friend. She works in a local museum, so my idea was to wish her a great career and become the Director of Louvre Museum in Paris! Why not? Sky is the limit, isn't it?
Anyway I needed some sketch or stamp with Louvre & I found a perfect one, which is a clolouring page, you can find it HERE.
And there's a new technique I tried: shading with ink. I saw in in THIS tutorial & I had to try! I mentioned before, I haven't got special machines (but they are on my X-mas wishlist!), so I had to manage with the things I have.
I embossed the paper manually using this yellow 'tool' on the left - this is a part of knitting needle - & a FISKARS plate. Then I shaded the paper using brown & black inks with my 'blending tool' LOL I just cut off a piece of kitchen sponge... OK, my hands were also brown & black, but I like the effect on the card.
I made a special business card for the friend - her name is Ewelina, and she just became the 'President-Director of the Musee du Louvre'.
This time I wanted the digi to be delicate, so I coloured it with colouring pencils only and done it a little bit careless for the 'sketch effect' (BTW copic's are horrible expensive in my country in relation to my salary, so I won't buy them soon) :(
There is also a hand made pin and a sentiment 'For your B'day - this is your day'.
I have never been in Paris, but I hope someday I will... meh...
