CE Sands of Time Card and Tag

I have been on a kick with the cards and tags lately. I have had a number of requests for specific cards. This is another set I made for a co-worker. Lots of texture on this collection.

Here is a short video of the creative process. Enjoy!


I started with the background with some subtle stamping with the distress text stamp.  I used the Distress Patterns Stencil and pulled the squares from the top paper and incorporated them with the background. I changed up the stencil on the next layer. I added a little blending with some sprays.

I love using dry wall tape and i think it adds a different type of texture than with just the pastes.

Using the Sands of Time  and the Live in the Moment  for the titles I think about the layering process, I use the two corner chipboard and paint spray on all of them. This gives it a shimmer that is irresistible.

I finish off the layers with ribbon, paper and top it all off with the title. I like to soften the look of the set so I dry brush with white paint to get the effect.
