mixed media birthday card

It was my brother's birthday recently and this is the card I made for him. My background started off with a dictionary page and then I glued aluminum foil overtop to give it more texture.  There are spots where I sanded the foil off to expose some of the dictionary page.  I'm quite happy with way it turned out.

Here is a list of the supplies I used:
  • acrylic paint (Golden Fluid Acrylic)
  • aluminum foil
  • chipboard
  • dictionary pages
  • gesso (white)
  • microfiche (you could use old photo film if you don't have this)
  • mod podge (matte)
  • sandpaper
