Grunge Mounted Scripture

Welcome

My apologies for not being around blogland much these past few days - but I have good reason this time - wee Annalise was born into our family on Saturday, and I have been getting my share of Grandma cuddles :-)

I chose to mount this wonderful scripture, which is a freebie over at Word Art Wednesday this week, onto a grungy style background so it would be an acceptable card to give to a man


I decided to mount the scripture on some corrugated card, that I had taken one surface off.  I left some of the torn paper on it, and also was careful to leave a smooth section in the centre of the panel so there was some purchase for the adhesive when I mounted the scripture panel.

I then smooched over some gesso, gold Inka Gold Paint and some Finnibar Art Alchemy wax in Fire Ruby.  I discovered this recently at a craft fair and love it!!


I used the gold paint to edge the scripture panel, and also flicked it over the base card, which is a recycled card I purchased from a local printer.


The final detail were the gold and bronze glitter tapes and a piece of coarse twine tied around the main panel - I did not realise it was a perfect match to the corrugated card until it was too late :).

What a beautiful verse, and you've used it to maximum effect on this very imaginatively designed card. Actually, I think it would work for either gender, but as you say, great for a masculine occasion as well. The work on the corrugated c/s is lovely, and I see this Finnabar stuff online, but didn't know what it was. Also there is a line of Patina products which look interesting. You've done a marvelous look on this card...and I like it very much. Congratulations on your new little angel, and getting cuddles is definitely a priority. They grow up so fast, so enjoy those cuddles as long as you can. TFS & Hugs

(1) Congrats on welcoming a new granddaughter in your family! (2) Thanks for visiting my blog! (3) Love the mixed media awesomeness of your card! (4) Suggestion for the twine--use an orange marker to add some color to the fibers. The orange will go well with your glitter tapes and paint dots. (5) Thanks for sharing this cool contemporary masculine encouragement card!
