Caardvarks Penny Black Inside and Out Challenge
So moving on to the tutorial First I stamped all the images onto my masking paper.
next rip a post it note or scrap card stock into two pieces for your water line. Some are more particular about the shape then others. I just rip it and however it comes out it comes out. You will need both pieces.
cover him with his mask.
I stamped all my pieces and covered them up with masks. When you are doing a scene make sure you stamp the image you want to be in the forefront first. The blue masks you see are actually the backing to the original masks. This is a little trick I use in order to save time. I don't have to use more masking paper and I don't have to cut a separate image. I just use the Zig two glue on the backs and stick em' down. The buildings didn't stretch across the whole horizon so I just stamped the bank and the jail again to fill it out.
Last minute I decided I wanted a rising sun in the background just to add a little interested. I punched a circle from card stock put some two way glue on it and stuck it down.
remove the post it note and the circle. Line the post note up with your horizon line this time masking the sky. Leave your waterline mask in place.
I used brushed corduroy for my desert. I also did some shading with vintage photo. Once you like the look of your desert you can remove the post it note.
Finally :) you can remove the mask for your waterline.
Only now you put on the other ripped piece we saved to mask the desert and sky. I used my Zig two way again to temporarily adhere it.
When you remove the mask you'll notice that your waterline has white areas where the mask didn't line up perfectly. Not to worry we'll fix it.
I colored in the rocks with walnut stain and vintage photo. I also used vintage photo on the canoe.
I colored in his outfit with antique linen
For the canoe details and his headband I used rusty hinge.
I won't bore you with all the details I'll just show the close up and the color list for the rest. For the cowboy I used barn door, antique linen, and walnut stain.
On the half portion of the bank I used tea dye, fired brick, antique linen, and walnut stain. For the jail I used black soot, brushed corduroy, and vintage photo. The buzzard is antique linen and wild honey.
The saloon was colored with tea dye, walnut stain, and barn door.
I used a lot of colors on the bank. I wanted the brick to look genuine. I used brushed corduroy, antique linen, rusty hinge, and fired brick.
The half (not even) portion of the jail I used walnut stain. Now that everything is colored I went back to work on the water. I used a dark gold yellow marker and outlined the shore. Then I used a navy marker to outline the water's edge, and under the canoe. I also made random lines in the water with the marker and a white gel pen.
I used my h20 pen and vintage photo to draw in some shadows for the cacti, cowboy, and buildings.
I added Glossy accents to the water's edge, just under the canoe, and all the building's windows.
For the inside of the card I did the same technique. I stamped the cacti, masked them, applied brushed corduroy, removed the masks, and colored them in with crushed olive, peeled paint, and forest moss. The rock was colored with vintage photo and walnut stain. The sentiment (so super cute) is from the stamp set It's a western thing. I used black for my card base.
Here is the completed card again. I hope it inspires you to try your hand at building a scene ;)
Thanks for coming over to visit, Have a wonderful night!!
