Get Carried Away

Hello there
Getting my crafting back on with a bit of card making over the weekend. I've been having a play with another of the StempelBar stamps picked up on my travels last summer.

This is a favourite technique of mine at present, combining silhouettes with stencilled backgrounds. I made the backgrounds by swooshing the paper through wet Distress Oxide ink and then adding layers of stencilling on top.

I stamped the Banksy balloon girl and masked off before adding the scratches. I finished off with highlights in white gel pen and a computer generated sentiment.

I got carried away having a bit of a play with some different colours and stencils.

Thank you for taking time to visit. Hope you have a great week ahead. xx
