Just a quick post of my newest creation. It is a simple shabby card with focus on a Christmas Stocking:
I used a piece of plain turquoise card stock as my base, added some heat embossed doily stamps, embossed cardstock for another layer, couple of doilies, stocking, shabby bow embellished with a fancy metal flower, some bling and Tim Holtz stars.
I stamped the doilies on the turquoise cardstock with versamark ink and heat embossed them with snow embossing powder. Then I covered that entire piece of cardstock with a layer of gesso. I wiped the gesso off of the doilies so that they stand out and kind of shine.
The brown piece of cardstock was embossed with a brick wall embossing folder and covered with a very light layer of gesso. I distressed edges of all the layers.
Here is the bow closeup, so that you can see all the loops and shabbiness. :)
One more look at the card from the side.
