I started out with a plain piece of heavy mat board....because if this turned out like I wanted it to, I intended to frame it.....and it DID!
The new stencils that MFT is releasing are WONDERFUL! I love this new "Large Chevron Stripes". It is a large square stencil that I just did a reverse mask using a large circle to frame my little image. The birds in this image I just sketched a quick outline with a pencil and then filled it in with black paint (If I can do that...anyone can!)...I added a little bit of white paint for shiny spots.
Another stencil I used with the "Graduated Dots". I laid it over my mat board and colored in the dots with my gelatos and smoothed out the circles with my finger, then I lifted off the stencil. The other little dots you see are from the "Distressed Background Blocks" set and I applied them with paint instead of ink.
"Right on Target" set you can see that this sentiment appears quite differently. My plan was to just stamp it with paint.....but because alot of this image is solid my paint wanted to stick in the little creases and the words wouldn't show up properly. I started STAMPING OFF the paint on scrap paper when VOILA! In stamping it off it looked really cool! So I painted it up again and then stamped it off once before stamping it on my project.
I LOVE it when things that you don't intend to do work out for the best! I laid my "Feathers and Arrows" Die-namics over top of my sentiment and with my finger smeared a little white paint to frame my sentiment with a feather :)
