Hi there! We hope you had a lovely weekend. We have Ali Carubia here on the blog today with a tutorial showing how she created an amazing card with our Forest Stencil, DREAM sentiment and our beautiful intuition quote…
I thought I would show you how I created my Forest Dreams card using the beautiful Forest Stencil from Visible Image. It took a little while to make but I think it was well worth it 😎.
You will find a list of supplies used at the end of this post.
And here we go…
First cut a piece of white card 6″ x 6″. Use the blending tool to apply Ocean Blue and Midnight inks over the card so that you have lighter and darker patches. Then add a little Plum Pudding over parts of the card and all around the edges. You could use any dye based ink instead eg Distress inks to get the same effect.
Use your paint brush to flick some water droplets over the card, wait a few seconds and dab off with kitchen paper. Take a round pot about 2″ diameter and place it in the top right hand corner. Wet your round paint brush and draw around the pot. Remove the pot and dab off the water with kitchen towel.
Use your flat brush to gently apply water to the circle in a circular motion and dab off with kitchen towel to faux bleach a moon shape. Dry the card with a heat gun. Use the Sparkle pen to fill in the moon and then tap your pen over the card to add some sparkly drops.
Dry your card again and then add Jet Black ink around the edges of the card to create a vignette, then dry it again.
Your card will look something like this..
Stamp and heat emboss the intuition sentiment from the Night Owl set as before. Lightly edge your sentiments using the blue ink that’s left on your blending foam and matt them onto black card with about 1.8″ border.
Here is my finished card…
Spectrum Noir Harmony inks in Ocean Blue, Midnight, Plum Pudding & Jet Black
Blending tool & foams
Clear Sparkle Pen
Paint brushes – round 3 and 1/4″ flat
Small jar to draw around eg. Pebeo gilding wax pot
Clear embossing powder
White gel pen
White card (300gsm) and Black card for matting & layering
Black Onyx Versafine Ink pad
Die cutting machine
7″ x 7″ white card blank
I hope you have enjoyed this project, thanks for stopping by.
Wow what a stunning scene! It’s so atmospheric and inspiring! Our intuition quote, dream sentiment and forest stencil work so well together.
