I love to add texture to my projects and simply layering different colours and materials can add so much richness and interest to a card.
I began by painting some metallic paint onto watercolour cardstock.
Next I took some Tissuetex and sprayed several colours of Brusho spray. I finished with some gold shimmer spray.
Once dry, I stamped and heat embossed some abstract patterns.
I tore of pieces of Tissuetex and pieced them over the metallic background before stitching in place.
I die cut apertures from black card and added a little detail with a gold pen.
Once the stitched panel was fixed in place behind the aperture I added a gold die cut sentiment.
