Blue Jeans and Bracelets

I'm a blue jeans kind of girl.  I could wear jeans most any day.  Though I do like to dress up  - I think I'm most comfortable in my jeans.  I was thinking about how pretty silver looks with blue jeans and then thought about how pretty a silver bracelet like our new Simply Charming set would look against the look of worn blue jeans, and that's how this card started!

I combined the metallic look of silver embossing with an aging effect to the Color Made Easy True Blue Cardstock.  The bracelet and charm images are all first cut out with the Simply Charming Silhouette Cut File, stamped with VersaMark and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  After the images were cooled, I went over the cardstock with a Ranger Distress Marker - in Picket Fence.  This marker is SO cool.  It fades the card stock but it almost takes on the silvery tone of the embossing.  It's the perfect effect for the charms.  I distressed the cardstock in the same way with the marker and also some sponged colour with Ranger Stormy Sky Distress ink, so it would look like worn blue jeans.   

A few accents like some silver cording, seam-binding and some metallic Saville Row Candi dots to look like rivets.    

So what's YOUR go-to piece of clothing?  Are you a jeans girl like me?  :)

Thanks for joining me again today!
