Crafty Steals ~ Sunday School

My cousin had to have a knee replacement this card is for her!!

Here is my cad:

Andreana at Crafty Steals made a card using Gesso and suggested that we try it...I have had a bottle for quite some time and have never really used it...I tried it on a page in the Art Journal I was making but didn't like the results...I really like how this card turn out with the Gesso!!

My card base is Kraft cardstock...I used a Stampin Up! stamp and So Saffron ink to stamp the swirl around the edges of the Kraft and then used clear embossing powder and heat set it... I used a piece of yellow cardstock from Bazzill and painted a thin layer of Gesso on it...I then took a Stamp from the Gina K Designs Bold Flowers set...and stamped in the Gesso while it was still wet...I repeated this,,,cleaning the stamp off each time...until the entire cardstock was covered...then dried it with a heat gun...I was too impatient to wait for it to dry!!...I sprayed some sweet clover Glimmer Mist on it and patted it dry with a paper towel...I used scissors to distress the edges...and pop dots to pop it up...I am so going to do this again!!...I really like the texture of the Gesso!

The sentiment stamps are from CardMakers Kit Club...I used the words "Sending"  "Happy" and "Thoughts"...and stamped them across a piece of Kraft Cardstock in two rows...and used scissors to distress the edges...I stamped the words with Rich Cocoa Momentos ink and used So Saffron to ink the edges...I attached this to the bottom of the card...

I cut a tag shape out of GKD cardstock and used a stamp from Stampin Up! {I'm not sure what the name of the stamp set is} and So Saffron ink and covered the tag...I add a piece of lace with a piece of ribbon over top and used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to adhere them to the tag...I used a hole punch to punch a hole in the top of the tag...and used a brad type thing over the hole and ran a piece of ribbon through it...

I stamped a butterfly with So Saffron ink and cut it out...I used a brown marker to color the body of the butterfly and a brown Copic marker to go around the edges...added a pink Dew Drop...and popped it up with pop dots...I added pink and yellow pearls to the top right and bottom left corners to finish it off!

Thanks for looking...and Have A Great Night!!
