Sometimes one just has to play around. This card is the result of just making it up as I went along. I started with some backgrounds I had made a long long time ago by dragging glossy card stock through distress ink that had been stamped on a craft sheet and spritzed with water.
From there, I decided to focus on this beautiful image originally by Leonardo Da Vinci, translated into rubber by Stamp Francisco. She has such a classic powerful look despite her elegance and grace that I wanted to pair her with an inspirational statement. I used some extra background glossy paper to stamp the sentiment (River City Rubber Works).
While the background paper was already subtly patterned teal paper, I added to it by stamping "passion" (Impression Obsession) repeatedly over the whole panel.
I ended up making two cards using this face and a similar theme.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Ladybug Crafts - Monochrome
Natalie and Amy's Challenge - Favorite Color Combo (teal and black)
Hope you find passion, poise and poetry in your day!
