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.


  1. Although I wasn't familiar with your blog in 2010, I had heard of Stamp ZIA. Seems they were all the rage back then, and, if I recall correctly, even had lots of card examples on their web site. This card is really lovely, and I certainly like the various techniques you used. Copper always makes me smile, so this whole card is lovely and happy.

    Thanks for sharing this gorgeous card with us for your second look on the 2nd.

  2. This is beautiful and rich. The colors are wonderful, almost autumnal.

  3. That a really great piece. Love the texture and colors.

  4. A gorgeous work of art and yes Krisha , I can imagine how difficult it was to part with it, lovely to look back and appreciate again our craft.
