ATC - First Aid

I'm slowly catching up. November's theme was first aid.

This collaged piece was fun to put together. A red cross from wide ribbon was glued onto a piece of plain old, white card stock.

The Gibson girl look a like is a Dover Publication copyright free image.* She was printed out, colored with colored pencil and then pasted onto the card. A scrap of lace and a crystal adds to her Victorian outfit. The tear drop was cut from floral stamens. The heart was cut from scrap paper and torn.

The hardest part of making the card was carefully unwrapping the Hershey kiss to use the foil and flag. I didn't want the chocolate to go to waste. I'm willing to make a sacrifice for my art.Candy Bar

This miss knows the only way to cure a broken heart is with a kiss. Winky

  1. Thanks for the tip about Dover. I get the catalogs but didn't realize they had copyright free images.

  2. Love it! And you are such a trooper to sacrifice for your art that way... :)
