quilt challenge-52 cards in a year

Week two 

In this weeks playing card challenge I decided to quilt first and add colour second.  I quilted using a variety of brown threads.  Next I painted a a variety of tones of brown onto different parts of the art piece.  I finished with metallic shiva paint sticks to make the quilting pop out and to give a nice sheen to the material.

Here is a close up of this piece.

My inspiration for the design of piece came from a piece of art deco iron work that I loved.  I chose the colours to be very gentle to match in with the very fluid lines.
