Stamp the funky cottage in Black Adirondack and cut a mask to cover it. We actually sell the masks, so you can even buy them if you're feeling plush!
Cover up the cottage and add the little funky trees on either side.
Tear a sheet of the manila card lengthways, so that the furry side is to the front.
Add some Lettuce ink to the Splodgemat and load the blending tool.
Work the Lettuce along the torn card.
Now tear a hill and do the same.
Take a look here and you will see how we are building a country scene. Don't worry if the card doesn't line up at the sides. We will trim it later on.
Now we need a third piece, too, to slip into the middle, I think. Stamp the large tree along the edge in black and darken the furry torn edge with Lettuce again. You should build your hills as the torn card comes...
Stamp the funky hedgerow along the base. This is a really delightful set of funky trees, cottages and hedgerows. It is perfect for the whimsy card.
Get your hills lined up, just as you would like to see them.
Colour in the trees and images with Promarkers, as you like.
The picture will start to come together now.
Set out the layers just as you want to set them on the back drop.
Mine worked best longways ( landscape). Yours may be taller than wide, so you decide.
When it is all in place, hold it together with masking tape and cut the sides to sit nicely on the Ochre card.
Punch a sun out of the ochre remnant, and attach it.
Or even punch the sun out of the manila card, to reveal the ochre circle. Either way, it will work.
I even made a couple of funky daisies with a funky punch!
Layering card is a really super way to add texture to a card. Try it - it's easier than you think!
Anyway, I must dash! Bye for now. X
