Find Your Wings
My Card. . . .
The Challenge for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week was Recycle/Upscale, I had this piece of metallic tissue paper that was a part of the packaging for a gift I received. I was going to throw it away but then decided to use for some texture on the back ground. I mixed some white glue with water making a decoupage and coated the panel, laid down the tissue paper, with crinkles in to create some texture then put more of the glue on top. While it was wet I used Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet, Gathered Twigs and Broken China to give it some color and also did a light wash with some Galaxy Gold for some more shimmer. I put concentrated dots of color on the wrinkles of the tissue paper, the color just followed the wrinkle which I liked a lot.
I got a Recollections stamp set from Michael's this weekend, and used one of the feather stamps to put some images in the top right and bottom left corner. I only did the Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet, Broken China and Galaxy Gold because I didn't want the feather to pull to much away form the card.
I did use all the colors when I stamped the feathers on the card front so that the exposed part under the shaker wouldn't be stark white. I used brown, light pink, gold and teal sequins in the shaker and also on the card front.
I finished it with a saying form the stamp set stamped in black ink and adhered it with some foam tape.
I absolutely love this card, I think it is very beautiful and I will probably use this process again.
I made this card for the following challenges:
See you next time!
