This card has amazing amounts of work put into it - literally days. Oh, not days on end, but a little here and a little there until I had been working on it almost a week! Can I possibly be the only one that works on stuff that long?
The main panel is done with the Joseph's Coat technique. I did add a little twist - some pearl glimmer mist was spritzed and allowed to pool (and dry) before stamping the Tim Holtz image. Even after brayering the black over the image you can still see streaks of shimmer - it's very cool IRL.
Let's see. The background panel was brayered with the same ink (Hydrangea pad from Ranger) then glued to a Hambly screen print sheet. I embossed that with a cuttlebug folder (not that you can see that texture in the pic, sorry!) and added the corner pieces (also CB). The tags were cut from a sheet of that gesso background blitz from a few posts ago, then edged with black and stamped on.
I think the tags were the hardest part of the whole thing. I had an awful time finding words to stamp on them. I wanted something meaningful, but they also had to be the right size. Finally I chose 'Art', 'Soul' and 'Love' - aren't these important to everyone? :) I also stamped some flourishes around the words - I just couldn't do without! Even though the ribbon on the tags looks black and white (which is how it started out) I colored the white portion with a Sky Copic marker. It actually matches the background colors quite well.
I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for coming to visit!
