This week I am showcasing the feminine image from the Gatsby stamp set, stamping her onto a die cut heart, adding shading around the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink and colouring with pencils. I have also included rusty wire to highlight the focal image, stapled into place.
I began by applying a touch of Fired Brick and Hickory Smoke Distress Paints to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and then mopping up the paint with my white card and then drying with a heat tool. I then dabbed the card into any remaining paint and dried once again with a heat tool.
I applied Fired Brick Distress Ink over the Dot Fade Layering Stencil and then repeated once again using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, adding yet a further layer of interest to the background. I also die cut two smaller hearts which I coloured with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and added a few delicate splatters to the hearts and to the background of the card using Fired Brick Distress Paint. I added three strips of Tissue Tape behind the focal image for further interest and texture.
I applied DecoArt Fluid Acrylic Titanium White over a Heart Layering Stencil to add contrast to my design, along with scratchy paint lines using an old credit card and Carbon Black Fluid Acrylic.
