It is fun to create different types of cards. As you know, I love creating floral cards, but today I wanted to work with Susan's Stencils to create a mountain scene. I still wanted to create a pretty flower for dimension, so I added one Lupine flower, which is commonly found up in the mountains.
The piece stenciled is a rectangle die cut using the largest rectangle from the Dashing Rectangles die set.
Using a variety of Distress Inks, Susan's stencils were used for the scene. First the Earth & Sky stencil was used to create a cloudy sky which comes down about half way.
The Mountain & Split Rail stencil was used to sponge on blue mountains just below the clouds.
The Snowstorm and Mounds stencil was used to create different levels of grass mounds below the mountains.
The Shade Tree Stencil was used to create the shade tree.
The Evergreen Grove Stencil was used to sponge on four evergreens on the right side and one evergreen on the left of the Shade Tree
The Behind the Scenes Stencil was used to sponge on three deer. The stencil was turned over to create a deer facing the two deer on the right. A green marker was used to add a few grass blades around the feet of the deer and the base of the Shade Tree.
The lower portion of the piece was sponged with green ink then the grass was sponged on using the Earth & Sky Stencil.
The flying Geese were added using the Earth & Sky Stencil.
The Dashing Rectangle used previously, was used again to die cut an opening in a piece of white card stock that is approximately 3/4 inch larger than the die. This created an open frame to fit around the completed scene that was created on the Dashing Rectangle. Use a Score Board to score around the edges of the frame, for a finished appearance.
Susan's Garden Notes Bluebell-Lupine die set was used to create the pink flower. It was shaded using pale lime green, light and dark pink markers. The flower and leaves were shaped using Susan's Flower Tool Kit.
Two Ladder Ferns were die cut using green card stock and placed behind the flower.
Joset's Spring Basket die set was used to die cut two grass die cuts These were placed in front of the flower.
Have you tried using the stencils to create a scene. It is very easy to do and a lot of fun to use your imagination. I hope you will give it a try.
