I'm In Glove

I made this card for the Michael Strong's Yahoo group August challenge, based on Mike's project: Faux Tie Dyed Backgrounds.
So I put my gloves on and I started playing with dye inkpads and baby wipes, in order to create hand-made special backgrounds.
The background is so dominant and special - I made a few of them and there are no two alike - that I needed only a few embellishments to complete my card. I matted it with gold paper to emphasize it.
I decorated my card with Michael Strong's Cloisonné Gecko stamp, stamped with metal Brilliance ink on black textured CS, which was also matted with gold paper (same as the card's background).
The Gecko was glued 3D for extra dimension.
I added a black pompon ribbon from my stash and metallic gold Dew Drops, and 2 black corners. It's a fun technique for creating special backgrounds, and I intend to use it again… stay tuned.
