begin I cut three layers of card, placed each layer together, holding
in place with low tack tape. I die cut a circle from white paper,
removed the circle and placed the aperture onto the white card. I die
cut a small circle of scrap paper and placed that into the aperture, to
act as a mask. I tore a piece of scrap paper lengthways placed this
piece onto the aperture and sponged Wild Honey Distress Ink over the
edges. I then removed the torn paper and moved it up the aperture,
inking as I went along. I repeated this process until I had what appear
like mountains in the background of the aperture. I then removed the
circular die cut piece and lightly sponged a touch of ink over the
circle. With the three layers of card still in place I placed the Rays
Layering Stencil onto the layers of card and sponged Distress Ink over
the stencil, adding ink over the three pieces of card. I used Wild
Honey, Spiced Marmalade and a touch of Fired Brick. I repeated these
steps on both sides of the card, I then removed the stencil and
separated the three layers and matted each piece onto a piece of black
card, leaving a very narrow border.
I stamped the cactus into the aperture using Potting Soil Archival Ink and I added the sentiment also stamped with Archival Ink.
love how the stencilled rays blend over the three pieces of card. For
added interest I also included delicate splatters of paint to the
die cut a small suitcase from white card, crumpled the die cut to add
creases and then coloured with Distress Inks, adding more depth of
colour to the creases to add to the aged feel. I then stamped the focal
image onto the suitcase using Potting Soil Archival Ink. I also added
the sentiment DREAM BIG along with a Remnant Rub.
I die cut two layers of the suitcase and adhered them together to make a dimensional suitcase.
