Raisin and Eggplant

Well after I uploaded the backgrounds I made from the previous post I had hoped to do some daily posts of the cards I was making in sent me another curve ball and you know those hands of mine that I showed you still stained with Polished Pigments after I had washed them four times???...well as I drove to work that day I inadvertently rubbed my right eye...this caused instant pain,redness and swelling...the swelling stayed there for several days and then I caught the flu ggggrrrr.Anywho I got to play at last yesterday and today with the raisin and eggplant looking sprayed papers I had made.
Firstly I tore and layered them onto Vilene using gel medium to glue them in place.These are inspired by the card Deb Baker sent me that is here

Next I stamped on them with white gesso to tie them all in and make them less quilt like

Then I added a hand drawn image I did from over 20yrs ago,ran it thru my sewing machine using straight stitch and zigzag, added some metallic words that I applied raisin and eggplant alcohol inks too,sewed on some raisin and eggplant stained paper flowers and buttons and sewed on some of the lace I had sprayed in the post below
Here is the top section closer
and the bottom part

This is a card for my Mum for Mother's day. :o)

I remembwr seeing that drawing from a previous post somewhere. I had been quite taken with it then- and it is perfect for this piece.
