I used the new Plant A Tree Stamp Set along with the Basic Ovals Stencil. The stamp set is on the smaller scale which means the price is fantastic. But it is also packed with a ton of images! The stencil is so versatile. It has four different sizes of ovals and it also comes with the co-ordinating masks!
I started by using the largest oval on the stencil and ink blended some blue and a little brown at the bottom. I stamped each image (they are all separate) directly onto the ink blended background. I used Gina K Inks for this as they work well with alcohol markers. I added very simple shading to images which really brought them to life!
I used the second largest of the Scalloped Rectangles Dies to trim down the piece of cardstock I was working on. To create the embossed lines perfectly around the oval, I held the panel up to the light and on the back side, lightly adhered the mask portion of the stencil. You can see through the cardstock just enough for placement. I then traced around the mask with a pencil.
On my scoring board, on the BACK of the panel, I added the scoring lines every 1/8th of an inch, stopping when I got to the traced line.
I added some white gel pen details to the images as well as 3 tiny, die cut hearts. The sentiment comes from the new From Afar Mini Stamp Set and was stamped onto one of the Useful Banner Dies.
Both the sentiment strip and the panel were foam mounted to a light grey card base which measures 5.25 X 3.25 inches.
I hope you enjoyed todays card and will check out the new CAS release!!
