You might recognize the vintage auto graphic on today's card...I've used it before, but in a different way. This time, I made the collage the size of the whole front of the card, changed the background papers, added a couple birds...well, see for yourself...
The color combo is a little unexpected...dark purple/blue, with leafy green, and kraft...the dark berry spray (which is labelled "blue" on the packaging) on the left side was the catalyst for this color combo, and I like how it turned out!
I printed out two copies of the collage, hand cut the birds out of one, and matted them over the other collage with foam tape so they gave some dimension to the front. A heavy coating of clear coarse glitter over the crown gives it some texture...
Since I knew just who this card was for, I went ahead and printed the sentiment onto the cream cardstock before stitching it to the inside mat and adhering it inside the card...
