began by adding removable tape to all the edges of my card; masking the
outside edges so that only the central panel is visible for decoration.
The central panel was then coloured with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and
dried with a heat tool.
then placed Tim Holtz Harlequin Stencil onto the panel and then blended
Vintage Photo Distress Ink randomly over the stencil to add a further
layer to the background. I then flicked the background with water to add
bleached out areas and then dried with a heat tool. I then stamped the
golfer onto the background with Black Archival Ink. I created a mask of
the golfer, placed this over my stamped image and then stamped the
background stamp over the top and then removed the mask. I applied
Carbon Black Fluid Acrylic to an old lid and stamped a circle around the
add further interest I added a touch of random stamping to the
background using the Ephemera Backgrounds stamp and Fern Green Archival
Ink. I also included some painted scratchy lines using an old credit
added the sentiment Live, Laugh, Play to the background and added a
stamped image to the inside of the card. I also included delicate
splatters of Peeled Paint Distress Paint to the background once I had
removed the removable tape.
