Hello, Gaylynn here. Card scene building adds interest to stamping. Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to make an outdoor nature background with mountains for this buffalo card. This works as a masculine card or for anyone.
This buffalo stamp is amazing and so detailed. I gave him a background using masking and ink blending to create card scene building.
Sentiment: Have a stompin’ great birthday.
Here are helpful tips for adding card scene building to stamping. To begin, stamp the buffalo with Copic friendly ink and also, stamp the HB2U accent tag. Then, stamp the sentiment near the bottom of the inside liner. Next, make an A2 card base from color cardstock then trim away about one inch from the bottom of the top fold. Also, trim a scene panel to fit the top portion of the card base. Then, add color to the buffalo. Fussy cut (cut out) the buffalo. Next, trim or die-cut cardstock slopes or mountain pieces to use as masking for the background scene. Place a mountain shaped mask piece in the center of the scene panel and add distress ink blending to the top and the bottom of that mask piece. Aso, mask the top and bottom of the scene to blend color for the mountain section. Finally, assemble the card pieces and the accents onto the inside and the front of the card, to finish.
Here is another look.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
