A different card for a girl


I have made a card for a girl in a mixture of styles. I wanted to make a sweet and rough "Tim Holtz" style card for a teenager. I decided to make all the background papers myself, experimenting with sprays, distress inks, stencils MetaMica, Gesso, dylusions sprays, distress embossing powder and dry embossing - just having fun :)  This card is inspired by a project made by a really good artist, Karen Berniston


The card is made from a sheet of plastic, then embellished and decorated.


On the front and back of the card, I have used white cardstock, sprayed it with dylusions sprays and Color shine. Then dry embossed it with "M-Bossabilities A4 Card Embossing Folder - Kickin' Rubber" from Spellbinders. In the end, I pained the paper black and sanded of the black paint where the paper was raised. The butterflies are cut out from a paper from "Graphic 45 - Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection - Butterfly Specifics"


The paper on the inside is also handmade and decorated in a "Tim Holtz style". The Crowns are a modified freebie from Shery k designs. They are cut with silhouette, distressed with distress embossing powder - vintage photo and slightly coloured with a mixture of gesso and vibrant turquoise dylusions spray.


To make the background paper, I used dylusions sprays (vibrant turquoise and a mixture of cherry pie and squeerred orange (mixed in a pray bottle with some water before it was sprayed onto the paper)). The background stamps are from "Tim Holtz - Mini Blueprint 3" - stamped pumice stone distress ink. The hot air balloons are from Kaisercraft - Periwinkle- Frames Sticker Sheet. The ticket is from My Mind's Eye - Dilly Dally "Celebrate" Tickets paper. The tape measure is from Basic Grey: Life of the Party - How You've Grown . The text is from a stamp set from Tim Holtz - Stuff 2 say. The hand is a digital freebie from Graphics fairy


The tube is a handmade tube, made from pearls and a plastic tube with wire going through it. I have used a small part of a book page inside the tube, and this also hides the wire. The gears are different freebies from, cut out with a silhouette, distressed distressing embossing powder and/ or painted with gesso and MetaMica.

  1. Wow, this is amazing, especially the fact that you handmade so many of the elements yourself! This really looks like a Tim Holtz card, but without the expense of buying all the glass and metal embellishments. Your teenaged recipient will surely be touched by your efforts. Thanks for sharing your work with us at Love to Scrap! challenge blog.
