One Layer Card

I loved this painting when I saw it in a Pier 1 ad, and had to keep it for inspiration. This is the card that resulted.
I NEVER do one layer cards. They are so difficult for me. But I am loving this one. I used a PTI Mat Stack die on a post-it note, to make a mask. Then i used the straight edge of other post-its(I went thru quite a few!) to mask off stripes and sponged.
I have been inspired by the Alisa Burke sketch class that I am taking to go out on a limb and paint on this card, instead of stamp. I then sponged PTI tea dye around the edges, and off the top of the mask too, to bring the color up to the top. (It was really a mistake, but a happy one, I went ahead and sponged a mix of colors all the way across, and like the way it turned out.)
