Home-made "Page Pebble"

o su

This card began with an alcohol inked background. Then I cut out a brown daisy from some pp I had lying around, edged the card with clear embossing ink & followed with UTEE in copper.

As you can see, I barely "touched" the edges of the design and of the card with turquoise acrylic paint, creating a look of PATINA! Looks weather-worn, doesn't it?

Then I added words that I typed, printed & glazed.

The final touch was adding a silver "concho" that I found at my local craft store. They also come round as well as oval. I backed it with a vintage image and filled it many times with my trusty clear "glaze" until it was full, making a raised dome-like shape once it dried. Lots of dimension here!

This card begs to be touched! ::smile::
