This is my last card for my Mum's birthday, which is on Tuesday. It's always a challenge to make totally different cards, but I've managed it again for another year !
I started by making the background, which is covered with DI and then I've used a stamp from the Tim Holtz Haberdashery stamp set. I then covered it with Gesso and used a baby wipe to wipe away parts of the Gesso to reveal some of the stamping. When it was dry I then stamped over the top using stamps from the Paper Artsy set called Buttons 3. I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tag die and covered it with DI and then stamped on it using stamps from the Tim Holtz Haberdashery set and the Katzelkraft Fleurs set. I also used the Tim Holtz Mini Mask - Florets for the flowers and the leafy swirl. The sentiment on the side is from the Just a Note stamp set by Stempelglede, I used a circle punch and blended some more DI over it.
The tags are all cut by hand and I've used a small alphabet set for the text, which apologies, I don't know who it's by. The linen tape measure is by Tim Holtz from the Ideology range. The letter charm is a Tim Holtz Type Charm and the scissors are from a set of charms I picked up from a garden centre when we were out and about earlier today !
I'm entering this card into The Craft Barn's challenge which is to use one of the Gesso techqniques that they have showcased.
