Art = Happiness ATC

The Rubber Dance color challenge for the beginning of September pulls colors from a beautiful image of autumn leaves.  My base actually started as something for a completely different project, but it morphed into this ATC.


My base started as Bristol paper covered with Distress ink.


To get the cream color for the challenge, I swiped on some white gesso (the gesso absorbed some of the brown underneath).  After that I scribbled into it while still wet with the pointy end of a paintbrush.  


The flowers (by Rubber Dance) were also colored with Distress inks and white gel pen.  The little grid in the upper right corner is a die cut that I covered with Distress Paint (brass and gold).  Last addition was a bit of green thread and sticker quote.

Thanks for swinging by today.  Check out the Rubber Dance monthly challenge HERE.
