Another Colleague's Farewell Card

This was the third leaver's card that I made for colleagues.  This colleague has a canal boat, so the image was perfect for the occasion.

I worked on a piece of Clarity stencil card (7" x 7").  Having laid the Abstract Squares 3 stencil over the top, I lightly marked the largest aperture in pencil, removed the stencil and masked off the area.  The canal boat stamp from Dimension Fourth (sadly no longer available) was then added using Onyx Black Versafine ink and the Tim Holtz stamp platform as it needed stamping multiple times to get a crisp image.  The masking was then removed.
The stencil was fixed back in place and Ocean Teal Artistry ink brushed through the remaining apertures using a Clarity stencil brush.  A little Clover Adirondack ink was added in areas towards the bottom using the same method and the stencil removed.
The canal boat image was coloured using various Faber-Castell Big Brush markers and Pitt artist pens.
To complete the topper, the word Change from Word Chain 7 (Claritystamp) was added across the coloured section below the boat using Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Finally, the topper was matted onto a piece of black card (7.75" x 7.75") and added to an 8" x 8" pre made white card blank to give everyone room to sign the card.
