Three little words...

I miss you...
I've combined several challenges for today's card.  It came together kind of quick. Probably because I love the colors I used: beige, pink & brown.
The designer paper name is Flea Market by Colorbok.  I found it on clearance @ Joann's in Richmond, VA.  The store was moving & they had so much on sale! I racked up on brown ribbon too. Different widths, shades & edges.  I LOVE RIBBON!
I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink.

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly.
