This ATC was made for a swap with a theme of hats, shoes, and handbags. I didnít plan on a monochromatic theme when I started the card, but as I was matching up the different papers and card stocks, it all came together beautifully with shades of rust ranging from the palest rose rust to deep cinnabar. I added coppery microbeads to the shoes and larger beads in the same color to add some visual interest in the corner.
