Using sketch #133, I created a card with a twist...because this week also had a piggyback challenge of not using any pre-printed patterned paper. So I had some work to do here. I started out with a piece of crumpled hand-painted brown paper bag. I had made a couple huge sheets of it to make 100 mini book covers. This is painted with a purple/bronzy shimmer spray and purple & brown acrylic paints with blending glaze. The top half of the card is the front of the paper. For contrast, and because it was pretty too, I used the backside of the same paper for the bottom left and right panels. The center panel is the same painted paper overstamped in black with a natural pattern that is from my newly acquired stash of Viva Las Vegastamps! The quirky bird head is also from VLVS that is stamped in brown ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I finished off with an acrylic bezel word from SEI and some burlap cording I received from May Arts for a contest I'm entering next month. I love this monochromatic card - it is cute!
