Hi and hello everyone.
Suzanne here, it's my turn again to share a little something.
This time it's a card.

drawers woman CP R524
fish skeleton FAS Q3302 
text heart SW G12184 
background stamp eye SW S14012

embossing powder black 432105 
multi medium matte CH-HSP24927
distress ink pads:
acrylic paint
old credit card 
self made rusted embellishments

I prepared a background by scraping acrylic paint over a base of heavy watercolor paper and using the 'pulled paper technique' (covering the card with matte medium, adhering scraps of newspaper for example, and pulling it off a little while later). I scraped gesso onto it where the images should go. The drawers woman has been stamped separately and colored in with distress ink pads and a waterbrush. As a base for the heart I used a gelli printing plate pull on deli paper, stamped with turqoise and heat embossed it with clear ep.
In some areas modeling paste was scraped through the TH stencil and to finish the background off I stamped parts of the eye background stamp. What you can hardly recognise: in the upper left the fish skeleton was stamped and heat embossed with frantage embossing enamel aged silver. To complete the card some rusted embellishments were added and the edges were heat embossed with black ep.
If you're wondering what this is all about - I thought of a woman who is tired of cataloguing and sorting people and things into drawers and decided to set all of them free :-)

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are not discouraged to visit this blog again to see what my teamies craete/d.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.
Hugs, Suzanne xx
