Woodware Sketch 51 Day 2

Sketches as I have said before can be used for all sorts of occasions, birthdays, anniversary, friends the list goes on and on.  This week I thought I'd do a general card and make it a tad distressed.  With Sketch 51 there is the possibility of combining different techniques.  I have used a couple of techniques. 
here is the sketch

So here goes this is my card

And this is what I used

Navy blue linen card
Gold mirri card
White gloss photo paper
Clear Scraps 6 x 6 mosaic mascil
Bird cage embellishments
Gold ink pad
Detail clear embossing powder
Square brads 
Heat gun 
Embossing machine

Gold metallic wax patina

This is how I completed the card

1  Take a piece of Navy blue linen card stock and cut a piece 8 x 8. fold in half.  This is the backing card.

2  Use the piece of white gloss photo paper and emboss using the Clear snaps stencil, when this has been done take the applicator and the gold ink pad and colour through the stencil, remove the stencil and apply the Detail Clear Embossing powder, and heat with the heat gun.  As the powder heats it doesn't lay smooth but has a distress feel..  

3  The next step is to cut a blue matt and attach the panel to the blue matt..  Take the gold gilding wax and lightly cover the blue border and the white of the panel.  Again this will give the distressed look.

4  Take the Bird cage embellishments and place then on to this panel and pierce the panel where you want to  attach the cages to.  Attach the cages using the square brads.

5  Cut a piece of gold mirri card  to make the layer behind the cage panel  .

6 The final step is to cut a piece of blue card and to matt this on to the gold mirri card, this panel will go behind the larger panel with the card.

There you have it ,the completed card.
