USArtQuest DT Challenge #3
The base of this card is black linen cardstock matted to ivory linen cardstock. A few carefully torn pieces from my vintage catalog page were adhered with PPA matte; accompanied by some lace trim, aged with a bit of walnut ink. For the finishing touches, I used heart shapes punched from mica to spotlight the model's face, the price and a deep red silk flower to bring a touch of color to the collaged card.
If you haven't played with Mica tiles in a while, hopefully this will inspire you to dust them off and get creative. Be sure to check out the awesome projects created by the rest of the team at the USAQ blog.
