Denim for a Teen

Welcome

I was stuck for a card idea, and was browsing though a magazine I have had for some weeks, (A U.K. magazine Cardmaking and Papercraft Issue173) when I came across this idea for a card, and as I had all the requirements on hand (which does not happen very often) I decided to give it a go. 
The article was entitled Optical Illusions/Tactile Textures, by Carolyne Knott..


I started with some linen textured card, and swiped Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans DI across it
as the base 'denim'

After that was dried I used a white pencil for the 'wrinkles' and a gold pen for the stitching


I had no fancy brads for the rivets, so heat embossed bronze over gold split pins instead.


The final detail was the sentiment, embossed with white e.p.

A simple card for a teenage girl who is very much on the go and loves her denim .

I am linking this to:

It's a prefect card for that age group Maxine, I always find them so difficult to make cards for.
