Today's card is a mix of Stencils, embossing paste and more....
Using only their Stencils/Stamps
and this is my project for their Challenge.
I masked off the 'Wall Area' first with a torn piece of paper.
I used distress inks and blending for the background, through the large leaf stencil.
Because I wanted to only hi-light the three smaller leaves in gold
I had to use an embossing pen and do them separately....took awhile.
I used black embossing paste for the wall, to give some dimension.
I free-hand drew the cracks in black to give the allusion of the wall breaking through.
I used clear embossing paste on the background leaf stencil to give some shine
but by doing this it reacted to the inks and slightly altered them.
Some of the depth of colour was lost.
I stamped the small leaf and the girl image onto tissue paper, embossed in white and gold,
cut them out and stuck them onto the wall with glue medium.
This was new to me and most of the tissue paper did disappear.
I wanted the white leafs to be a little more grungy, so hi-lighted them with a white pen,
which gave a contrast to the shiny background.
This project took much longer than I thought and again learnt lots along the way
The photo below, hopefully shows the shiny background.
