So this time I'm back with a card that is created with Claritystamp stamps and stencils. I bought the motorcycle stamp recently and was itching to use it. I needed to make a male birthday card and I thought that this would be the right time to use it.
So I started by stamping the Harley in black archival and clear embossing it. I then masked it and got to work with the brick wall stencil. I masked off the arch and the floor area and also the bike.
Using the clarity brushes and various brown distress inks, I blended them through stencil. i added some texture over bricks by stamping in aged mahogany with a texture sponge. I also darkened area around arch as this creates depth and makes it look rounded.
For the ground I used the chess stencil and pumice stone distress ink after masking off the brick wall area.
Then it was time for the scene inside the arch. I put a sun mask and masked off the brick area and inked the sky again with the brushes. Then using a strip of torn copy paper i set about inking in the fields.
The trees, fences etc are all stamped in black archival.
Finally I inked the sun and then coloured in the Harley using Spectrum Noir pencils. I used a silver sakura pen for the metallic areas and used glossy accents over the red areas. It is really difficult to see in pics although i tried various angles.
I hope you like my make, Theresa xx
