Hermine’s Card Project

the talented and lovely Hermine from The Netherlands asked me to participate in her rolodex card project and this gorgeous card arrived along with a blank card for me to work on…

Hermine's lovely card

Hermine is sending blank cards around the globe so she can fill the lovely box she altered with lots of different artists’ creations

my collaged card for Hermine

I had wanted to needle felt a card for her file box but thought in the end that it might be too bulky so I created a layered collage card using various bits of paper (including a tiny piece of map from San Francisco, California)…embossing with thick gesso…Inka Gold highlights…a bit of altered paper towel for the water and a piece of daisy trim for the sun from a friend

    How fun Patty. Our mixed Media group should try this.

  12. I remember the craze about three years ago when we were all making those altered Rolodex cards. In fact, I still have quite a few blanks left over after I bought a whole set. Of course, none of mine ever looked a s good as yours. It is simply darling. What surprised me was the paper towel. I had to look twice to recognize it. Lovely, as always. Hermine is quite a lucky gal.

  13. Wow Patty you created such a lovely card, i like the beautiful swan.
    I had also a look at Hermines Blog and was fascinated, she created so wonderful things, I could not stop to look at. I think I will take a look on her blog often in future. Thanks for sharing it. I had never seen such cards before, lovely idea. Little place for great artworks. For seeing such wonderful artworks from women around the world I love the Internet. 🙂
    Wish you a nice weekend with less snow.
    Dearest Greetings
