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.
stamped the focal image of the gent with Black Archival directly onto
the painted background and then added layers of interest with stencils.
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.
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.
