Jeans Birthday Card

Hello, my friends!

I am back again :) with a mixed media card I created for my dear wonderful friend and a teamie Pamellia for her birthday which is today :)

Happy Birthday, my sweet friend!

I wanted to create a kind of a grunge elegance so I used a piece of jeans fabric, added some stitching using my sewing machine and some white gesso through the Tim Holtz's stencil. Then I started to add some metal elements, some lace,  wooden pieces, 3D art stones, flat back pearls,  buttons and such. 

I covered everything with white gesso and used a lot of different acrylic paints, pastes, inks and mica powders to achieve some rust/patina effect. 

I glued down the whole piece to my craft card base using my 3D gel.

I hope Pamellia is going to like this card.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving lovely comments! I read and appreciate each and every one of them!

Hugs! Branka xx
