Crazy Amigo Challenge - Autumn: Created ByHand Challenge - Texture



I just participated in a very challenging swap. We were invited to purchase three commercial greeting cards and to alter them in some way. We could sew or paint on them, cut them up and and reassemble them. I chose to add beeswax to this one. The card itself is an interesting shape as you can see from the first photo. The colours in it were so indicative of autumn and the D.J. Pettit woman just seemed to belong in amongst the beautifully coloured leaves. This is my entry for the Crazy Amigo as well as the Created ByHand challenges this week.
