I started out with a completely different card base but then messed it up and wasn’t in the mood to try and fix it – so I pulled out a previously messed up card base and worked on that instead!
I had originally used Matte Multi Medium to adhere the book paper to the card and then misted over the top, wiping away most of the excess. It didn’t work with the idea I had in mind for that day so I put it aside. Luckily, it was perfect for this one!
I added Bronze and Interference Red Perfect Pearls Mists, then used my gold and silver Metallic Paint Dabbers to stamp the stars and create the moon. I outlined with a black pen, and used Tim Holtz Chitchat stickers, plus Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiment.
I had thought to use a wood veneer airplane but when I opened the bag and saw the bicycle I laughed at the thought of an ET type of card – so I went with it! Even if no one else gets it, it makes me laugh!
Love the interest that book paper gives the background, and it always adds a great textural element as well – I’m glad I held onto this one and kept it out of the trash bin!
Hopefully, the mess I set aside earlier will come to a good end another day…
See you all tomorrow for another Tuesday Techniques: Stencil post – I’m breaking out the molding paste!
