Soar by Amanda Southern


Hi everyone

I have a card for you this week and here’s what I did to make it.

Here’s What I Did:

Starting with a piece of mixed media card, or you could use watercolour card, I spritzed on several colours of Dylusions sprays. Over the top of that I stencilled the Sunburst stencil using black Archival ink applied with an ink blending tool. 

I then mounted my background onto black card and left quite a wide black border as I wanted the additional stamping to flow off the page. I then stencilled several more elements using Dylusions paint, these were stencilled using a mixture of Dina Wakley and That’s Crafty! Dinky stencils.  

I then stamped Dina Wakley’s Scribbled Elements over the stencilling. Onto a separate piece of white card I stamped the bird from Dina Wakley’s woodcuts stamp set. I added it to my background using 3D foam to raise it up from the background. 

The final touch was to add the sentiment which I heat embossed in white using one of the sentiments from Lynne’s affirmation set 2.

All was then mounted onto a card blank.

Here’s What I Used:

Black Archival Ink Pad
That’s Crafty! Dinky Stencils – Punchinella, Numbers, Half Circles
Dina Wakley Stencils – The Basics, Spinner
Dina Wakley Stamps – Scribbled Text Elements, Woodcuts
Card Blank

Hope you like and and I’ll see you all next week
