Two doilies were sponged with Faded Jeans distress ink and then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Perfect Pearl mist to give them a nice sparkle. The smaller doily was glued under the frame to make a base for my cameo element and the other doily was used for both the heart and the denim flower base. Let me tell you how they were both created - I should have taken pictures, but I'm horrible at that. When I'm creating, I'm creating. I hate stopping to take pictures.
The heart on the right side was die cut from white chipboard and colored with faded jeans distress stain. When dry, I glued a piece of the doily over it and then trimmed around the edges. But I wanted it to have more of a porcelain feel to it so I coated it with UTEE. It came out really cool - too bad I covered most of it up. For the piece under the denim rose, I took another piece of the larger doily and using Claudine Helmuth Multi Medium Matte, I glued it to a piece of acrylic packaging. When dry I cut it with the Mini Tattered Florals M&S die. Why did I go through the step of gluing the doily to the acrylic piece, you wonder? Because many times when you die cut a doily, it all falls apart. The acrylic sheet became an invisible backing to hold the doily flower in place.
All the silver pieces were made by sticking foil tape to card stock, die cutting them and smearing black paint dabber on them, then wiping most of it off.
This is not a card, but rather a little piece of desk art. I put an easel on the back so it will stand up.
Everything else is pretty self explanatory, but if you have questions, let me know by sending me an email or leaving the question in the comments section. Thanks so much for dropping by today. Hope you will take the time to stop by Our Creative Corner to see the rest of the cool denim pieces designed by the rest of the team.
Have a great weekend!
