Now Playing: enhancing the mundane
Topic: New Work
I really like to cull illustrations from good quality jewelery catalogs. Their photography is so crisp and the images enhance cards like nothing else.
The center square of this card is a paint sample of a Ralph Lauren paint . Into it is mounted the cloisonne butterfly from the catalog and enhanced it with self-stick rhinestones in green and gold - including a green teardrop for the body.
At the top and the bottom of the opalescent white card are irridescent rubons from the dollar store - made for use on blue jeans!
