I’m also featuring scene-building stencils and Distress Inks, I found them essential to create easy and quick backgrounds for any project.
Card Making Process
- First, I stamped the images on Strathmore watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and the Misti.
- Then, I applied colour using Zigs.
- Next, I die cut the images using the Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine and I put them aside.
I decided to do the stencilling directly onto the card base. So I use an A2 card blanc by Tonic Studios as its paper is great for ink blending.
*** To avoid inking the back and the edges of the card base I used cardstock behind the front panel and underneath the card base.
When creating these kinds of backgrounds, I always start from the top to the bottom of the panel.
- First, I stenciled the clouds applying Tumbled Glass Distress Ink .
- Then, I stenciled the trees and then the grass using a mix of green Distress Inks.
- Twisted Cintron for lighter areas and Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness for the darker areas.
- To add a little bit of texture, I added some dots over the grass area of one of the cards using green Copic markers.
- I didn’t spray water over the inked area, to avoid warping the card base paper.
- Next, I stamped the images and sentiment from Art Is stamp set over the stencilled image using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and the Misti.
- To finish, I used adhesive foam pads to stick the die-cut image over.
To complete the card above, I also used the sentiment “loving you is my favorite kind of art” from the Love Art stamp set by Anita Jeram.
That’s all for today.
