Blank Focal Point against a Colourful Background

I decided to reverse my usual method of stamping by leaving the focal images blank, masking them off and creating a colourful background instead.
Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 5.5” nested square die. Cut a mat from black card using the 5.75” nested square picot die. Build up a scene using the SHAC Doodle Woodland stamps in Onyx Black Versafine ink. Make masks for each image from mask blanks and mask as needed by stamping onto a piece of copy paper, laying the masking material over the top and fussy cutting.
 
Finish masking up all the images.
Stamp the A5 Trees Mixed Impressions Texture stamp over the top in Tea Dye and Rusty Hinge Distress Oxides with a little Ground Espresso at the edges. Stamp twice to cover the entire background, joining the images behind the fox/toadstool.
Use a spot-on sponge to blend some ink outwards off the masks, add a little Vintage Photo Distress ink in the same manner, then brush Vintage Photo Distress ink round the edges of the topper. Remove the masks.
Add further drop shadows with Vintage Photo ink and a Pergamano blending pen and nib, leaving the images uncoloured.
Mat up the topper and add it to the front of a 6” x 6” white card blank.
To finish, add one of the Feel-Good Factor word stickers.
