Hello our sweet visitors 🙂

Hello, it’s Dorota again – today I’d like to show you step by step how I’ve made this card.
I’ve started with a square piece of paper from Love is in the air collection. First I’ve inked the edges with mahoganny Distress Ink. Than I’ve whitewashed it with some gesso; I’ve used dry, hard brush with a very small amount of gesso to make delicate smears.
Then I’ve add a thick layer of modeling paste randomly all over the paper – I’ve used different patterns to get more dynamic look.
I’ve done the same with a decorative tag from the same collection:
When the paste was dry, I’ve distressed the edges with scissors and applied heavy gesso with my finger to add a interesting, dimensional finish to my card.
For a base of my composition I’ve used the decorative tag. I’ve fixed some tangled thread, die-cutted vellum paper and tulle to the tag with staples and then attached it to the basic paper with foam tape.
I’ve added some white and peach splashes and let it dry and then embellish it with flowers, using a a hot glue gun. In the end I’ve filled empty spaces with little circles cut out of a piece of coordinating paper, previously covered with modeling paste (in fact, it was a base for a layout that I’ve never finished…).
In the end I’ve attached the base to the white base with foam tape – and here it is!
