An Art-card

Heya!!
I'm back after a week and this time I've again been inspired by Cardpatterns sketch 107! I am very happy today because I loved making this card , every bit of it because I got to combine my two big passions..card-making and art!!I love painting with soft pastels..I love how you can blend them with your fingers and how the picture looks almost like an oil painting without the effort of an oil painting!I made the painting of a bunch of tulips (copied from a book on pastel paintings) on pastel paper and made the frame with icecream sticks.I used papers and black twine sent to me by dearest Asha..did a bit of distressing with white paint around the edges..and used a brad to hang the painting!Hope you like the card ....have a great day!
