So I was stumped with day three. All of the techniques were awesome but I didn’t have the tools they were using to reproduce the cards so the easiest one that I could reproduce was the first technique they showed. I tried my hardest to take pictures as I moved through the steps but at the end I just got in the groove that I forgot to take pictures but I think I’m getting better at remembering! I need a stencil to create my background but didn’t have one that was not Christmas theme lol so I just made one.
So since distress inks react with water I thought ok I could use water to lighten up the night sky using my custom homemade stencil and it did work! Yay except I used regular cardstock and not watercolor paper duh! So the cardstock start to warp really bad and the water was seeping underneath the custom homemade stencil that I just left it to dry. The little I got it to lighten up was good enough for me.
From my homemade custom stencil I stamped and colored the little girl from Mama Elephant shooting stars stamp set. I partial die cut it so the the legs would still be attached to the bottom of the banner I was trying to create. Then I took it to the paper trimmer and cut straight line on both sides of her. I ran the bottom half of the banner with the scalloped frame from Mama Elephant through the die cut machine to finish it off. And make it appear like she’s sitting on a cloud. Added some distress ink in tumble glass to the edges. Put some foam tape on the back of the little girl and the banner set it towards the bottom of the card lining up the scallops from the base and then glued that to a white cardstock to and I was finally finished.
Thanks for stopping by…
