Art Cards

For some time I have been making 4 x 6" BeDe Cards (more on that later) but recently I have become inspired by ATC's (Art Trading Cards) which are about the size of playing cards. Many are highly detailed, mulit-layered and beautiful collages. Thus inspired I have made a few, tho in keeping with the 4x6" format. Here's one for your viewing.

Title: Mystery Woman
Details: Advertising image painted out with Gesso. Image re-traced in pen and hand painted with acrylics. Entire card covered in sewing pattern tissue paper. Embellished with rubber stamp and ribbons. Accented with hand sewn buttons.
