The Great Gatsby

Welcome to my final card in the series using the Gatsby stamp set from Artistic Outpost, available from Our Daily Bread Designs.
I painted the background of my white card with DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Medium Grey and Dark Grey, blending with a baby wipe and then drying with a heat tool.
I stamped the focal image of the gent with Black Archival directly onto the painted background and then added layers of interest with stencils.
I applied Hickory Smoke Distress Ink over a Tim Holtz Layering stencil to add letters to the background, giving a tone on tone effect.  I highlighted the focal image by adding painty circles around the image using DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Titanium White and Carbon Black and then dried with a heat tool.
For added contrast I applied Titanium White Fluid Acrylic over a Chevron Layring Stencil and also included delicate splatters of paint. To complete I stamped the sentiment "The Great Gatsby to the bottom of the card and added a ChitChat sticker to the top.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
