Daisy Parkland Scene created for Chocolate Baroque

Here is another of my samples created for the recent Brusho demonstrations by Lesley Wharton on The Craft Channel. If you missed the show it is still available on catch up via the website. Well worth watching – Lesley was brilliant. AW Daisy Parkland 4

I have created a step by step for you with pictures showing the build up and stages for creating the scene.

Materials:

Step By Step:

AW Daisy Parkland 1

Step 1 – Stamp the wall with Versafine (Onyx Black) and apply masking fluid. Plan the position of the trees and paint randomly with masking fluid for the foliage. This creates gaps in the branches after the trees are stamped to create a more realistic image.

Step 2 – Stamp the trees with Versafine (Vintage Sepia). Use some scrap paper to mask the lower section of the card (i.e. below the wall). Paint the background with diluted Brusho’s (dissolve the crystals in water and use like a watercolour paint). Use tissue to dab off excess ink from the masked areas. When dry remove the masking from the tree foliage.

Step 3 – Paint the tree foliage and drop on some dishwasher salt whilst the inks are still wet. Leave to fully dry. This creates a lovely texture. If the card curls use some removable low tack tape to hold down the edges.

Step 4 – Remove all of the masking and salt. Paint the wall and foreground. Add foreground texture using the texture stamp from the Glade set and Versafine (Vintage Sepia).

Stamp the birds (Landscape Edges set) with Versafine (Onyx Black). Stamp leafy texture onto the tree foliage (Woodland set) using Crushed Olive Distress Ink.

Dust the bottom area of the card lightly with talc. This helps prevent stray embossing powder sticking onto the background. Stamp and heat emboss the daisies (Woodland set) with Versamark and white powder. Knock back the solid white of the daisies using the blue-grey alcohol marker. Colour the daisy centres with yellow alcohol marker.

Use the fine tipped pen to draw grasses and emphasise shading and branches on the trees.

Outline the card blank with black alcohol marker. Mount the painting onto black card to frame and draw the faux stitched border with the white pen. Glue to the card front.
