this is a project i have had in my head for a while
it is about 3 foot long.
one of my neighbours is a card shop called PACK OF CARDS and the owner very kindly takes some of my cards to sell, so as a thank you i have made her this.
the background is done as in tim's day 12 xmas tag with music and word tissue. i covered the surface with biscotti pearl spray. i had to support the back with some wooden battens as it is quite heavy!!
the words are SCRABBLE DASH playing cards [ebay]
on the left is a selection of metal flowers using a technique from tammy tutterow HERE. i had a great time making these from tattered florals cut from foil sheet. i love the new ranger enamelling powder. i added a couple of butterflies cut from patterned card from my stash, and an ideaology ornate plate has the owner's initials covered in glossy accents.
on the right is a selection of gadget gears in various metallic effects, both paint and embossing powder [e.g. verdigris - another fave!] plus idealogy cogs, and some fab laser-cut cogs i found on ebay! i added 2 moths from paperartsy and the owner's husband's initials in a paperartsy 35mm slide .
ideally i would have liked to mount and frame this but the cost was too much!!
i think it is dry now so i'm about to give it to them.
i hope you like it. tony x
