GC47: Copper, Ginger and Rust

Last year, we started the Gingersnap Creations blog off with a color challenge - Copper, Ginger and Rust! We loved it so much, we are making it an annual event!

I've have changed a lot of things about my art in the last year - my designs, my mediums and my raison d'arte if you will. I decided to commemorate some of those changes and some of my new feelings about doing art in my submission for this challenge!

Here's my Renaissance Woman trinket box:

Stamps: Da Vinci Woman (Stamp Francisco); Renaissance Woman, words and elements from Renaissance Woman set (Stamp Francisco); diamond and fleur de lis from the Addison set (Paperbag Studios)
Collage Image: woman and child from Beautiful Mothers sheet (Enchanted Mercantile)
Paint: Super Copper and Brass (Lumiere Light Body Metallic Acrylic)
Ink: Jet Black (Stazon); Gold (Color Box)
Tools: stipple brush, sequin waste, sponges, and Mod-Podge

Here's what I submitted last year (although I must mention that I still love this card):

While I still love making cards, I have definitely expanded to some new formats. It's such a great feeling to know that this old art dog can definitely learn a few more tricks! I can't wait to see what I get into this year!!

If you like what I made, you should check out the absolutely fabulous creations by the Gingersnap Creations Design Team!
