GC47 Color Challenge


I have been working on this card for a swap, when I was browsing the blogs I fallow and realized this fell into the color challenge! The face is from Stamp ZIA, colored with pencil, trimmed out, then 3 coats of ultra thick UTTE. She is layered onto copper craft metal that had been wrinkled then rubbed with blue, green and a little brown for that patina look. The black leather paper was torn around the edges then rubbed with copper metallic rub-ons. I found the round copper and silver accent piece lurking in a forgotten box. It all lays on a muted green card. I love this card and hate to send it away, but I know my swap friend will enjoy it too.
