Earlier this week I decided to make a master board using gesso, distress inks and a selection of stencils and stamps. There are several tutorials on YouTube if you're not sure how to go about this technique. I've definitely come to the conclusion that if you want to know anything about a particular method or technique there is more often than not a choice of videos on You Tube for guidance.
I've often done inky backgrounds but always worked on smallish pieces of card but this time I went for the whole A4 sheet which would give me a good amount to incorporate into several cards. This is the first one which has only used three narrow strips so there is plenty remaining. I thought the background needed to feature so just added a sentiment on some die cut shapes.
Stamp - Stampendous
Central motif - Sue Wilson dies
