lesson 23 homework

This was another card shown yesterday on classroom show. I used house stencil, sun mask, and stamps from rise and shine set and birdcage.
I started by cutting a piece of theuva card to 15x15 cm. I laid innie of stencil down choosing are that I  was happy with ( I sprayed it with stick and spray as my gate bit is wonky and otherwise moves).

I used a dream weaver stencil brush to put down black. Unlike Barbara I used black archival ink as I didn't want it to bleed when i used the distress inks later. I then stamped branch from bird cage set to frame artwork.

Then I positioned sun mask to side and using clarity brushes I inked with squeezed lemonade, mustard seed and spiced marmalade distress inks. I lifted mask and swirled inside the sun with what was left on brush. I turned mask slightly thus covering the rays so I could ink sky. I used tumbled glass, broken china, spun sugar, tattered rose and spiced marmalade.

Next came hills which were simply done using a piece of copy paper and peeled paint ink.

I finished it off by stamping sentiment in sun, cat on fence and  3 birds from bird cage. Matted and layered on complementing colours of card.

Finished size 7x7.

So i hope you haven't gone to sleep and kept with me till end. Have a good day, Theresa xx
