I began by using a homemade stencil and mask from a scrap of acetate.
After adhering the stencil to the card base, I used the mask to make the different sections. I am using various colors of Distress Oxide ink and blending brushes.
Here you will see one sections complete. Line the mask up evenly and proceed making sections. These can be any size.
Continue with the sections spacing evenly.
Repeat the process with the various inks. Blend them together lightly.
Fill in the entire open section. The key is to take your time and space evenly.
Using Versafine Clair Inks I added the stamps.
The mini pine cone was added to fill in areas. I used first and second generation stamping.
Now for some leaves.
To help balance this card I added the owl.
To give the card more interest I added some words by stamping second and third generation.
I softened the edges by inking with a smoothy.
Final touches was to simply add a few Nuvo Drops for dimension and interest along with some highlights with the Posca paint pen.
Thank you for taking the time to follow along!
