This card features "faux leather" paper which I made yesterday. You apply acrylic paint and glazes (Glaze Vernis by Delta) in layers until you have full coverage and nice rich colour. Once dry it has the soft lustre of leather. I started with brown paper and made brown, green and burgundy.
The little bird image is a used postage stamp. I collect all of the interesting stamps that arrive on our mail and use them in my art when I can. I like the way this one turned out. Very simple and easy!!
