I placed a circular piece of paper in the centre of my card to act as a mask. I then added Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade to the Stripes Layering Stencil, simply press the inkpads directly onto the stencil and then spritz with water. Lay the Stencil onto the card and dab with a piece of kitchen towel and then remove and dry with a heat tool. Repeat to add detail to the whole of the background.
I then began work on the central aperutre, applying Wild Honey and a touch of Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink the the circular area. I used Wendy Vecchi's Frames to create this and placed the mask over the background area to mask off my coloured background.
I stamped the gent into the centre of my aperture using Black Archival Ink, stamped him once again onto scrap paper, cut it out and then used this as a mask. Witth the mask in place I then stamped the desert in the background. I then added the sentiment 'DREAM BIG'again from the Wander and Dream stamp set.
I added delicate paint splatters to the central aperture using Ripe Persimmon Distress Paint and I then added scratchy lines to the background by simply pressing my acrylic block onto my Black Archival Inkpad and then pressing onto the card. I love adding layers to my designs.
