It´s so fun to find new ways to use your supplies! I wanted some kind of jungle feeling background for my previous Shaker card. I thought it could be cute with lians in different green shades. Suddenly I came up with the idea of using my Stiched Hillside dies and use the space after taking off the die-cuts as a stencil.
I used different angles of the dies. Make sure to leave some space on your cardstock so that the stencil don´t break.
Use your favorite white paper that works well with Distress Ink and a Blending Tool.
First I used light green shades random over my paper. You want your lians to show and then your background can´t bee too dark.
Use Washitape to make sure that both paper and Stencil don´t move when you add your colors. I started with Forest Moss.
This is how it looks after the first color. But to get a cool jungle feeling you need to add more layers and colors.
I also used Peeled Paint and Moved Lawn. After every layer you move your Stencil to the right and to the left or even upside down to get the lians loop to different directions.
The next step is to create the frame and box for the leaves. I always use EK Success powder to stop the static on the OH sheets. For this card I will use 3d tape instead of the foam sheet I used on my Shaker Card with three windows.
Now the background is ready for the sloth gang. You find my list of supplies at my prevoius post where you also can see my finished card.
