I wanted to play along at the challenge at Card Positioning Systems blog last week, but I ran out of time :( So this week I was determined to take part.
Here is the sketch....
And here is my interpretation...
I began by sewing strips of 7gypsies Avignon papers to the cardstock base. I stamped the image from Paper Artsy HP 1007 onto some scrap SEI Windsor range paper. The edges of all the strips and the image were distressed using a distressing tool and some pumice stone distress ink. I embellished the stamped image with watch parts, DMC thread, rock candy crackle paint, a safety pin and chipboard shape.
Once dry I mounted it on more cardstock and then attached it to the card. The sentiment is from Darkroom Door all occasions set, distressed with my fingernail and more pumice stone ink. I added a few rhinestones for a little more texture.
Thanks for stopping by.
