Abstract Collage Greeting Card


Above is an abstract collage on an extra-large (5.5"X8.5") greeting card.  The foundation piece of paper, taking up the right two-thirds, was made with my 9"X12" stencil Mimosa, shown below.
 
 To achieve the subtle print on this foundation paper, I used what I call the "stencil-and-scrape" technique.  I've described this technique in detail here.  And here.  And here.   It's a technique that remains a special favorite of mine -- it's quick, easy and somewhat unpredictable:  I like not knowing exactly what the results will look like; I like surprises of this kind.
