bejewelled landscape by rachel

Hello there,
I have another couple of pieces for you today including a step by step for my patchwork landscape card. But first of all my dress form:

I had much fun making this piece - I painted the dress form first then stamped the images onto rice paper and coloured them. I applied them to the dress using decoupage type glue...once finished I made a quick hat out of cardboard and added that to the dress form too!

And so to my card ...To begin I created my card blank ... an A3 piece of card was cut in half along the long edge. Once I had done this, instead of just folding the card in half,  I folded one flap to be very narrow and one flap to be very wide ... I then cut three pieces of card ready to mount onto this card blank.

On each measured piece of card I used a landscape stencil and mask to create land and sky using distress oxides and a stencil brush.

Next I added the stamping.... I tried to allow room for the gap on the front of the card - and also did a bit of masking in order to get the images to work together. I also added some pen lines for more landscape...
Next I added colour to the sun and the stamped features using inks and water colour pencils.

I added these to the card blank and added some sequins. 

I do hope this is helpful - if you have any questions please ask away!

Big hugs

  3. Two fabulous creations Rachel, and the rice paper looks great on the dress form, and finished with the wonderfully constructed hat, and then the unusual shape of the card with that beautiful scene using the patchwork stamps, and super colouring too. x
