Wander without a reason or purpose.
I am showcasing the Wander and Dream stamp set from Artistic Outpost today.
To begin I cut three layers of card, placed each layer together, holding in place with low tack tape. I die cut a circle from white paper, removed the circle and placed the aperture onto the white card. I die cut a small circle of scrap paper and placed that into the aperture, to act as a mask. I tore a piece of scrap paper lengthways placed this piece onto the aperture and sponged Wild Honey Distress Ink over the edges. I then removed the torn paper and moved it up the aperture, inking as I went along. I repeated this process until I had what appear like mountains in the background of the aperture. I then removed the circular die cut piece and lightly sponged a touch of ink over the circle. With the three layers of card still in place I placed the Rays Layering Stencil onto the layers of card and sponged Distress Ink over the stencil, adding ink over the three pieces of card. I used Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and a touch of Fired Brick. I repeated these steps on both sides of the card, I then removed the stencil and separated the three layers and matted each piece onto a piece of black card, leaving a very narrow border.
