Jazz time

This is the birthday card i made for my brother. I started with a gelli print using brick, number and dotty wave stencils from Claritystamp. I used black acrylic paint and silver but it's hard to see that in pic. Next I stamped the jazz background from Claritystamp with black archival and clear embossed it. I then stamped the jazz man with black archival in 2 diagonal corners just for positioning and for cane. I stamped and embossed words from Clarity stamp on background to add to distressed look.The background was further distressed by rubbing gilding wax on in some areas. I used copper and silver.
I stamped jazzman twice on theuva card and clear embossed the shoes and gloves. I cut them out and stuck them down where i had previously stamped them on background using Pinflair glue. Then I distressed edges by running scissors along edges to fray them slightly. I wrapped some twine around the other 2 corners and added some ideology bits from Tim Holtz. Mounted it on kraft card base. Finished size is 21x21cm

Hope it all makes sense. all for now and happy crafting, Theresa xx
