A bit of reusing going on here. Do you notice that drop earring? It's a single one given to me from my dear friend with other bits and bobs who kindly thought I might put it to good use ... and I did! And a ball chain - that's from a dress tag I believe! You can't really see it but the ball chain is through the eyelet what's behind the oh-so-pretty lace as I wanted all that fancy metal to hang loosely from the top of the card - a few metal claw clips as you can see, some Tim Holtz Philosophy Tags, a keyhole, the metal frames with epoxy dots on top. The papers on them (and the big round one with a frame) are by Kaisercraft Antique Bazaar. I fell in love with that collection, sooo beautiful!
The card itself has five craft paper layers underneath to keep it sturdy for all that metal. I dry embossed the top layer, then used many different acrylic paints, did heat embossing, some touches of Antique Wax too and Ecoline, and High Gloss Varnish to seal in the Ecoline. Also gave a touch with Golden Gilding Flakes. On top through the Tim Holtz Doily Stencil I used a mixture of Sparkle Texture Paste and Copper Micro Beads. It left such a fabulous texture!
Entering my card to Berry 71 Bleu February Challenge. (Such gorgeous golden rich colours, and textures, wanted to implement it to my card too!)
Also to Scrap Africa February Sketch Challenge (I used the metal frames to represent the flowers as on the sketch. The sentiment meaning on my card .. well simply, a true friendship is to be treasured all year, always!)
All the best,
