This evening I wanted to show a card made mostly with just stencils. I began by scraping Smurf and Moonlight Fresco paint over the card. This is textured card, so the paint doesn't hit all of the surface, I like this as it allows the colour of the card to show through.
Next I used my torn paper edge stencil PS031 to create the line of the landscape. I did the darker green area first in Tinned Peas and then angled the stencil and added the area at the back in Sage.
Next I used the grass edge stencil, PS029 and Hyde park and Guacamole to create the grass in the foreground.
Now for the clouds, I used the random edge stencil PS030 and China, then some snowflake on top. These worked out so well. I also used Cherry Red to stencil the berries , they are done with the hanging bead stencil from PS031. Once dry I outlined them with black pen.
The only stamping here are the flying birds from EDY10, using Watering Can Archival ink.
I then added white highlights to the berries. I blended Cornflower and Hydrangea and Black to the edges of the card, this really makes the images pop.
Now for the focal image, I stencilled the large butterfly from PSO29 using Eggplant, Cherry Red and Tango, with highlights of white posca pen.
I then decided the berries needed more colour, to differentiate them from the butterfly, so I added Tango dots, and then went over them with white liquid pearls.
The stems on the berries still didn't have enough contrast so I added yellowy orange to them using a Derwent Graphik pen.
I am really pleased with this one, I love how the scene all came together with mostly just stencils.
