As we are not too far away from Father's Day here in the UK, I created a male themed card as my Guest Designer post for AALL & Create this week.
I used Olga Heldwein's fabulous Red Baron stamp (Stamp #114) along with her Geometric stencil (#81).
I started by using a piece of watercolour card and applied a layer of watercolour paint over the whole piece. Before it dried I placed the stencil on top and rubbed gently over the stencil with a damp cloth to lift some of the colour. The cloth needs to be damp but not too wet.
I created two backgrounds using the above method and also stamped a plain piece of card (which was used to fussy cut and colour the airplane element).
I cut the rest of the elements from the darker of the two base pieces. I also painted some screw head brads to use as embellishments.
I layered up each of the circles on foam pads to give them some height. The airplanes were added without dimension.You can also see the brads in place here. I stamped a sentiment from a stamp set by Tracy Evans.
To finish off I splattered over the whole card with white, black and red acrylic paint, mounted it onto black card and then onto a white card blank.
You can find a list of worldwide stockists of the stamps and stencil I used HERE.
Thanks so much for your visit, it is always appreciated!
