Looking Good by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I’m back with this Tuesday with a card using one of the fabulous stencils from
Matus deMeng by Stencil Girl Products.

Here’s How I made it:-

I first made my background by rubbing a selection of Ranger dye inks onto a piece of white card using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I then cut the background up into 9 equal pieces and stamped the Prima Industrial stamp onto each section. My reason for cutting the background up was to randomise the colours and give a patchwork appearance. I then mounted all the pieces onto a piece of green card. Masking off the backing card I dripped down some white DecoArt Shimmer mist. Once that was dry I then stencilled through the stencil with black Ranger dye ink using Ranger Cut and Dry Foam. I then added some Dylusions paint in orange with an old bank card.
To finish it off I added some Remnant Rubs from the Life Quotes set using the Remnant Rub Tool, using this tool makes such a difference to the transfer of the rub on, added some torn script washi tape and finished with a sentiment from Tim’s Big Chat Sticker Book.
This was then all mounted onto an 8 x 8 black card blank.


Items used:-

Ranger Dye Inks – Lemon Twist, Caribbean Coast, Electric Lime, Cheese Puff and Black
Script Washi Tape
Lime Green Card
Black Card Blank 8 x 8
Old but well used bank card
Hope you like it and see you all next Tuesday
