mixed-media card with chippies and stencils {SA CRAFTERS}

good morning lovelies! 

it is time for my monthly project for SA CRAFTERS and i've prepared a brand new creation + a video tutorial to share! 

this time i decided to create an every occasion card for my best friend! i haven't seen her in awhile and i believe a hand-made card is the perfect way to send my regards and best wishes to her! 

so, here it is - a mixed-media card for your best friend:

for my background i used 10 x 15 cm white card base, which i altered with SA CRAFTERS 6x6" triangle stencil and black ink, and TIM HOLTZ brown distress ink.

for my second layer i was wondering between mint and black, but at the end i decided that though mint will add an extra colour to my colour palette, black look much better with my vintage-industrial design. 

for the third, and the final paper layer, i used pattern paper from the 6 x 6" paper pad from KAISERCRAFT antique bazaar collection.

to give extra dimension to my project, i used SA CRAFTERS chevron mix sides stencil with white texture paste and the fancy flowers stencil with black ink. to finish off my background i sprinkled TATTERED ANGELS "bahama blue" glimmer mist and "black olive" glimmer glaze on top.

to alter the gear wheels (SA CRAFTERS chipboard gears pack) i used VERSAMARK watermark stamp pad and CLEARSNAP black embossing powder.

then i applied the same combination for the square chipboard frame. the die cut sentiment and the clock faces come from KAISERCRAFT antique bazaar collectables pack.

and here is a step-by-step YOUTUBE video tutorial:

i hope i managed to inspire you today!

have a FABULOUS week!

hugs 'n smiles,
