This is so far out of my norm, I don't even know what to do with this card. :-D The initial face image is a newsletter freebie from The East Wind and it intrigued me from the first moment I saw it. For some reason, it made me think of the artist, Picasso, and I began to envision something reminiscent of his art. This college-effect card is the result.
I printed the image three times; first onto kraft CS, then twice onto white. I tore rather than cut the pieces, then colored just the eyes, using gold ink and brown ProMarker in order to maintain the black, white, and metallic combo. I sponged distress ink onto the kraft image after I tore it out and then layered it onto the white card front.
I added the torn pieces of white image and added 'score' lines for stripes. Finally, I added the sentiment and the twine.
OK, I think Picasso is completely out of my system now. I sent a photo of this to a friend, asking for her opinion (because I knew she'd be honest with me) and her reaction was that it would have made a great cover for an art journal or diary. Now I wish I'd thought of that before I did a card. At least I wouldn't be wondering if I'll ever use the card. :-D
Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
