Nature Goddess ATC

Since I'm not hosting a technique swap any more, I thought I would play in Deb Lovett's swap.  I had been wanting to experiment with corrugated cardboard, and I had this great image from CS Designs that was perfect for the Bandana technique.

I love the texture of the corrugated cardboard, but I wasn't loving the color - I swiped some green distress on it, then gave it a wash of shimmery copper.  The Bandana technique is just fun to do.  Does it look crooked?  They all do.  It's the cardboard.  It doesn't like to be cut straight.

Challenges:
Corrosive Challenge - recycled material
Creative Inspirations Paint - favorite color
Paper Sundaes - distressing
Sweet Stampin - brown + 1
Stamp Insanity - monochrome
Digital Tuesday - tropical warmth
