Kylie's Birthday Card - World Map in Colour

I Had to make a card for my friends Birthday, but I really wanted to play with my blendabilities.... so of course I had to put the two together and this is what happened.
I did look up maps of Africa to get an idea of forest and desert, or in other words yellow and green. After looking at the maps I also noticed the oceans and seas show the deep and shallow water too, which was tricky but fun to do ( I felt like I was working backward with the dark & light ). This was also tricky on the land, so I found myself using a lot of dots to map out the colours so to speak.

Card stock: Basic Black & Whisper White.
