Sgraffito

I created this card while experimenting with a new style of painting called sgraffito. For those of you that are interested you can find the definition of Sgraffito below.

Sraffito, (Italian: “scratched”), in the visual arts, a technique used in painting, pottery, and glass, which consists of putting down a preliminary surface, covering it with another, and then scratching the superficial layer in such a way that the pattern or shape that emerges is of the lower colour.
