mixed media card

My background started off with dictionary pages and then I used some wrinkled aluminum foil on top of it for texture. The butterfly I used was as an image transfer for another card and since there was still a fair bit of the image left, I cut it out and used it here.

Here is a list of the products I used:
  • acrylic paint (Golden Fluid Acrylic)
  • aluminum foil
  • card stock (for bunting)
  • chipboard
  • dictionary pages
  • embroidery floss
  • gesso (white)
  • mod podge (matte)
  • pattern paper (for bunting)
  • sand paper (to sand away some of the paint and expose the aluminum foil)
  • sewing pattern
