I am taking a walk back with this card where I used a design from Penny Black that is several years old. It is also one of the designs that I taught in my recent classes.
The reason for teaching this kind of card was to show how to use dies, and a lot of dies at once. Also, to show you do not need coloured paper for this, infact doing your own colours is far better.
This card has stamping, die cutting, stencilling and layering and using a fork to make a bow, which is such fun.
The card is 6.25 x 4 inches. On Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper I applied the transparent texture past over my stencil on an angle and running off the page.
By the time I cleaned my workspace and stencil the paste was dry allowing me to move on to my blue background. Laying down Distress Oxide Ink in Blueprint Sketch and spritzing with water I painted the piece.
I then stamped the Script background stamp on my card base using Ranger Sepia Archival Ink, then using my Life Changing Brushes I sponged over the stamped area with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.
To the card base I attached the blue painted piece, leaving the raw edge of the watercolour paper showing.
Again using the Fabriano watercolour paper I die cut the pieces I was using. I made puddles of Distress Oxide inks and dragged the pieces through the ink, then added extra colour layers using my paint brush.
Once I was done with the die cutting and watercolouring I styled the pieces and arranged them on my card base, adding them to the card using Nuvo Adhesive and Foam Squares.
And, of course I had to add my pet bird CC, colouring her with Copics and perching her on the stem of the leaves. Using embroidery thread and a fork I made the bow for the jar, attaching it with the Nuvo glue.
The ladies enjoyed making this card, as did I. It brought back many memories from cards I used to make.
