Including the Scrap Yard!
I decided to participate in the Etsy Inpsired Challenge. I entered it once before a few weeks ago, but haven't found the time to enter it again until now. I'm so excited about this particular challenge. The featured Etsy designer is PaulaArt, a self taught artist who works with lost, tossed and forgotten items that are left by the roadside, buried in an old barn, or deposited at the local scrap yard. When I saw her work, I knew my card would include a lot of texture, distressing, layers, metal embellishments and bold colors on an earth-tone background.
Here is the artwork that inspired the card:
