Hello friends! I'm so excited to be guest designing for My Favorite Things today with a scene card featuring a stenciled background and the adorable images from Party Like A Pirate Stamp Set. Scene cards are some of my most favorite cards to make but sometimes building the scene creates a lot of bulk. Stencils are a fantastic way to create a background for almost any scene without the bulk of lots of die cut layers. Pirate image seem to be all the rage right now and these awesome MFT Birdie Brown images are the perfect size for coloring! I just love all the MFT Birdie Brown line of stamps!
Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink was applied to Bristol smooth cardstock before the same color was applied over the inked background with the Radiating Rays Stencil. Water droplets were added to the background with a Distress Sprayer for a fantastic oxidized effect. Along the bottom edge of the same piece of cardstock Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink was applied. I didn’t worry too much about where the inks meet since I’ll be covering up the seam with a stamped greeting banner.
Images from the Party Like A Pirate Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. Birds were stamped directly on the background. The rest of the images were die cut with the coordinating Party Like A Pirate Dies and adhered to the background as shown. A glitter pen was applied to the coins to give them a bit of glimmer and Glossy Accents was used to add definition to the parrot’s eye.
A greeting from the Party Like A Pirate Stamp Set was stamped on a die cut Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strip with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The greeting strip was adhered to foam adhesive right below the die cut images to help “ground” them and give them a place to stand. The panel was adhered to a white top fold card base to finish the design.
