A while ago I made several backgrounds with metallic acryllic paint. I finally got around to make a card with it. Unfortunately the ink isn’t taking on this metallic paint (could be I also sprayed it with distress copper spray, I think I started making it in May and finished it a month later).
I had stamped a text/background stamp but it hardly showed, so I thought I’d emboss a swirly curl instead. When I poured the embossing powder over it, it appeared that my previous stamped image hadn’t dried yet, so I could emboss that too. Sometimes unplanned things turn out great. I decided my lady Jude would fit here bperfectly, but I didn’t feel like colouring her. So I stamped her on different pieces of paper, distressed those pieces and cut them out – she is paper-pieced together wit ha few layers. Every colour is another stamp. (Only now I notice her left hand should be on the top layer, but it’s on the back layer).
And only now I notice I haven’t got a picture of the finished card… it’s dark now, hope the picture will turn out ok. I really could have sworn I took a photo when it was ready. Ah well, at least you can relate the colours to the above picture.
Here it goes: Lady Jude by night
Last thing was to add a text, and that was the hardest thing. How would I fit that on? Stamping wouldn’t work. So I took a piece of paper and stamped the text. I tore the ends of the strip of paper and sprayed it in a “splattering” way so the drops would fit with the turqoise drops on the background. Then I outlined the word “Possiblility” with a silver metallic gelpen, and inked the edges with dewdrop gold.
Now a series of pictures, each one horrible on lighting, but it gives an idea of the card. These pictuers were made beneath the lamp on our IKEA bjurstra black-brown table.:
I’d like to enter the following challenges with this card. I hope the fact that I made this card before the challenge doesn’t count as backlinking, I’m a card or 10 behind in posting.
- SanDee & Amelie’s Steampunk Challenges – July Challenge: Rust (closes end of july)
- Craft-room challenges – Challenge #56 – Heat Embossing (closes around monday 5th of August)
Aah yes, see I did have pictures of her, she made a cameo appearance before in one of my blog posts, I hope that doesn’t count as backlinking as she was just a figurant in a post about two dancing ladies, making backgrounds and the possibilities of a digital image I got. (she was the mother, the daughter went out shopping for clothes). These are the pictures where she appears from that post:
