With my nephew turning 16 and not surprisingly preferring money to anything I might choose for him, I decided to make him a card that presented the cash in a more innovative way than just popping it in an envelope!
This card is soooo not me! Apart from the fact it's not my usual style, the whole rigmarole of paint techniques is not my strong point either.
I covered a piece of card with foil tape, embossed it and covered it with black antiquing cream - in my ignorance little did I know it would all come off in flakes with absolute minimal contact! I 'glued' the remaining black bits onto the silver with varnish, while keeping my fingers crossed it would all stay on! So far, so good!
I'm linking up with Julia over at WOYWW, and if anyone out there can advise on what I should have done to stop the black paint flaking yet control how much I rub off then I'd love to hear it!
