HYCCT1527 Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1527 Edna’s “Strength In Numbers” Challenge to use "masking" to create a group of people or animals.
Again, if you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above gallery- fantastic inspiration from all!!
I decided to use the Graphic45® Couture set from Hampton Arts® to create my group of fanciful ladies :-)
To create this card:
Stamp the main lady in the center using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
Re-ink the image and stamp onto a piece of scrap paper, fussy-cut out the image and use this as a mask for the main image on the Whisper White cardstock.
Ink the other two ladies using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Remove the mask and color the image with Faber-Castell® Polychromos™ Pencils and use Gamsol® with a Blending Stump to blend.
Add definition with the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and add shadows to all of the images with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.
Add Frost White Shimmer Paint with an AquaPainter™ to the hat and dark bands on the central image, the veil, gloves on the right hand side lady and the coat for the lady on the left.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Spellbinders® Labels 18 Die to cut out the panel along with another label from Basic Black cardstock.
Split the Basic Black label in half and mount behind the focal image.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Real Red cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Texture Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.
Stamp the sentiment from the retired Stampin’ Up! set, Fabulous Thoughts using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, add the banner points with the Hexagon Punch.
Mount the focal image and sentiment to the card front with dimensional foam and add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon Double Bow along with the Rhinestone to the center of the lady in red’s blouse to finish off the card.
