There were so many steps to this card. I started by gluing down scraps of newspaper. The newspaper was covered by tracing paper with a black rubbing on it. From there I moved to watercolor. First some black applied in a watery wash to dull down the colors. Then I added the wax paper shapes with the black ink. I went back to watercolor and traced those with crimson and then starting adding yellow around the edges. The finishing touch was the yellow tulle which coalesced all of the elements. For some reason it has a map like quality to me.
