Something technique

I wanted to show you a card that I learned about from a class over at Jessica Sprague. The class was computer tricks for cards - well this image is a brush image by Lizzabeth, I printed it out on paper and transferred it to material using a product called gel medium - this was new to me but you can read about the product here It might sound like a lot of work but it was really fun to do - the medium is like glue - you paint some onto fabric, print your image and lay it face down on the fabric - leave it overnight, wet the fabric and rub off the paper then you can use this on a card to give it a real vintage feel.
I printed off some paper from Studio Gypsy Shrine Set to punch the circles out of - I also created the embellishment at the bottom, used some Tim Holtz distress ink to stamp the back of the fabric for some show through framed it up with some kraft paper and onto some brown bazzill card stock! 
Lots of steps but well worth the effort for a unique looking card ...the possibilities are endless!
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
