A tangle in tulle

Hi crafters. Experimenting again. Definitely not CAS! Lol.

This card started as a gel press experiment and then took on a life of its own. The first layer had gold paints so there is a sparkle in the light. The outer black layer was done with black paint and Stampendous Industrial Stamp. The black turned out a bit heavy so I decided to put Neat and Tangled Hexastar cover plate on top. ( That was partial die cut twice to extend it for 5×7 card).

I decided to use ‘dream’ from the Sizzix Sentiments 662668 die and cut pieces out of the cover plate to fit the sentiment. Impression Obsession Express Yourself stamps were used for the stamped portion. To mute the edges I cut strips of tulle and sewed it around the border, then cut and ripped bits of it out. I thought the tulle softens the edges and makes it more dreamy. If I did it again, I wouldn’t gather it quite so much.

I hope you think the centre is mint coloured as I’m going to enter this at CAS-ual Fridays which requires mint and neutral. (Teale is dark mint, right?).
