Stenciled Background & Spotlight Scene - MFT WSC 359

November 15, 2017

Today I'm sharing a card I made for this weeks MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC 359).

To create my card, I was inspired by two cards - HERE (by Nichol Spohr) and HERE (by Michelle Short), both use stencils to create a background scene and pop up a part of the scene. It's a fun way to make a focal point without adding too many elements on your card.

I realized that this looked like a twin with a card I had shared HERE after I finished this card. Sorry for my poor creativity. But it's OK. You can see how today's technique works. Ha ha!

I created the snow hill and the ice on a piece of watercolor paper using the Drifts & Hills Stencil, Scattered Straw Distress Ink, Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, and Mini Ink Blending Tools. The Drifts & Hills Stencil is really versatile! I also stamped some snowflakes to the sky with Scattered Straw Distress Ink and added more falling snow with a white gel pen.

After inks dried, I cut out a part of the scene using the Inside & Out Stitched Rounded Square STAX Die-namics. Those double stitching lines work as a frame in this weeks sketch. I die cut three more stitched rounded squares from Blue Breeze CS, stacked them up, and adhered the inked piece on top.

I stamped, colored, and die cut the images, adhered them to the panel, and added the sentiment panel. I matted the inked panel with a panel of Biscotti CS and adhered to the card front. I added some Diamond Stickles to the hills and Glossy Accents to the hearts to finish off the card.

  4. きれいなステンシル効果ですね。私もDrifts & Hillsのステンシルは便利に使わせていただいています。真ん中の四角を重ねて高くされているのでそこにまず目が行きますね。以前のカードとこのカードは全体的な色合いは似ているけど、細かい所はいろいろ違っていてとてもいいバリエーションだと思います☆ くまこ
