Hi There Readers,
I was recently inspired by some cards shared by Stacy Zimmerman Hutchinson
from Tattered Nest Designs who (if you don't already know!)
is part of the Tim Holtz Creative Team.
She shared a technique that is really cool! Mono printing with Layering Stencils.
This technique produced so many backgrounds I was able to create lots of cards.
Check them out below:-
Here is the link to her original tutorial.
The spray ink colours I used were the same: Fossilized Amber, Salvaged Patina & Seedless Preserves.
This is a colour combo I would not have thought of, but it works so well.
I used an AaLL & create stencil that is half butterfly & half floral
as I don't own the Doodle stencil used by Stacey. Any detailed stencil will do.
After making lots of backgrounds, I added white heat embossed text in random areas & machine stitching.
Extra background pages were used to die cut insects & florals from the funky sets by Tim Holtz & Sizzix. Funky Florals Large & Funky Insects Thinlits dies.
These colours pair so well with kraft & white cardstocks.
I played around with backgrounds & foregrounds die cut from the Sizzix Mixed Media die sets,
the Paper Cut Bird die & the Funky Wreath die.
Various sentiment & word dies were then chosen & cut from any cardstock scraps.
Layering the sentiments makes them stand out from the backgrounds.
Dies from Sizzix, Paper Rose Studio, Concord & 9th.
Each card is all about the layers. Vintage buttons are the only other embellishments.
Hope this gives you some ideas for card creations too.
Just make some backgrounds & see where it takes you.
Thanks for reading,
Thank you for a great tutorial. I agree those spray colors I would not have put together but they work great together.ReplyDelete
