The front of the card is created using a gear stencil...I applied Enamel Powder Adhesive over the stencil and dusted with Real Rust powder. I heat set the powder and then edged the card stock with the adhesive making wider patches in places. Mermaid Tears was layered on top, leaving translucent patches on the stenciled background. I love the chunky glitter in Mermaid Tears and it's translucency--you can see the background through the emboss enamel.
The focal piece was created by stamping the sentiment and embossing it with Micro Black first and then masking the sentiment to stamp the rest of the images. That was also dusted with Micro Black and heat set. The card was colored with watercolor washes and mounted on a piece of card stock edged with Victorian Bronze.
The inside of the card has a layered strip--edged with Victorian Bronze and a large panel stamped on the edge with brushes--and embossed with Victorian Bronze. This panel was also edged with the Mermaid Tears to tie it into the front of the card. The focal panel was placed so that it extends over the edge of the shortened front and over the stamped side panel.
