21 cards - #9

Hello again.  I just can't stop making these cards for the monthly challenge on Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art.  This is number 9 already. 

Please refer to this post to see how I made the base for my cards.

Again, I reached into my inspiration jar for some ideas.  I really think getting this little nudge is helping me get into the project and make progress.  My words this time are squares, red, and leather. 

I started with just a little green paint dragged across the card in both directions with a foam brush. 

Several years ago, a friend gave me some white (cream) deer hide.  I don't use it often, but I do like to use it on a project now and then.  So I pulled out a piece and stamped the Hero Arts flower on it with tuxedo black memento ink, and then colored it with Copic markers and cut it out.  I really like how vibrant the colors are.  I cut a stem and leaves free hand from the leather and also colored those with a Copic marker.  I used matte medium to adhere the leather to the card. 

The sentiment I printed from my computer, drew a square around each letter and cut them out.  After gluing them down, I added a few lines along the edges of the squares. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Love the red flower! I bet it has a wonderful texture in real life!

I really like your idea jar. Once I find my space again, I think that I will make myself a jar/box for the same inspiration!
