In the Style of... ATCs

The October 6:5 ATC theme on ccswaps is "In the Style of..." We are to pick an artist, current or past, and create an ATC in their style. I like Van Gogh's paintings and have been wanting to try the Van Gogh technique. Started by stamping a bold floral image on white paper with Distress inks.
Using a variety of blue, green and yellow markers, added color over the paper with markings to mimic the Van Gogh brush strokes.
Added gold leaf charms to the flower center, colored the edges with a gold leafing pen, attached to dark green card stock with gold colored brads.
Decided "something" was needed, so outlined the flower and stem with a gold pen.

These are fantastic. You must have a lot of patience to do all the little dots on the background.
