I created an aperture in the front of a kraft card to frame this wishing well scene.
Stamping directly onto the front of a 7” x 7” kraft card blank in Versamark ink, add the large blackberry corner from the SHAC Doodle Blackberry set at the top and bottom and heat emboss with detail white embossing powder.
Add the large dragonfly in the same manner.
Lay the middle nested oval picot die over the centre of the card and mark the position in relation to the dragonfly. Use a craft knife to cut along the top edge of the dragonfly up to the pencil marks. Slide the oval die below the wings and cut out the rest of the aperture from the centre of the card. Erase the pencil marks.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75” and lay it inside the card. Mark the edges of the aperture lightly in pencil.
Stamp the wishing well and the large leafy branch into the pencil aperture in Mushroom Adirondack ink.
Mask off the well. Use the Mountains and Hills mask and two tones of brown distress ink to add hills in sepia tones. Erase the pencil lines.
Add the stencil card to the inside of the card blank, lining up the aperture.
Colour the well and branches in shades of brown Faber-Castell Polychromos.
Using a white Posca pen, add a line around the oval aperture up to the dragonfly wings.
To finish, add a couple of Barbara’s word stickers.
