The theme for this 3rd round is using stencil. Stenciling is quite popular these days and for that reason, it's quite challenging in a way that it has to be creative yet beautiful.
Did you notice that making one card and cooking for the big family gathering has the same effect of creating a total mess in the house? Well, it applies for me. I put so much heart of making this card that I had to mix and match colors, template, and images. I always struggle with design. Actually I made two cards for this round, and after comparing, asking opinion, and taking photos, I'd go with this one:
I use Hero Arts stencil - Tweed Pattern. I don't have many stencil collections. I don't even have modelling paste. So I applied various colors of distress ink on patterned paper panel to obtain this ombre effect. After that, I applied gesso in some areas. For the image, I heat emboss poppies from Delicate Blossom stamp by Hero Arts and then watercolor them. Fuzzy cut and adhere to panel.
Now, If you think I deserve a spot at a top ten of Gallery Idol 2014, vote for me here. If you new to this, you must create a user name. It's very simple, just a-less-than-five minutes process. Find my card at #14.
