Dream Big: An Elegant Card

I combined one of the new Elegant Ladies stamps from the Elegance set with the matching stencil to create this card.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 4.75” x 6.75”. Add one of Barbara’s Elegant Ladies from the Elegance set in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink and mask it up.
Add Cracked Pistachio, Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides to the large square backdrop stamp using foam tools, spritz lightly with water and add a partial print to the top of the topper.
Repeat the previous step on the bottom.
Add the Clarity New Design Stencil Club Mirror Image (#4) stencil to the front of the topper and blend Speckled Egg Distress ink through the lady. Remove the stencil and mask.
Colour the image with Faber-Castell Polychromos (#154, #205, #132, #102, #189).
Add Dream Big using Mini Word Chains 5 & 6 (Dream) and the Alphabet and Numbers Word Chains to make the word Big. Stamp in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
Blend Speckled Egg Distress ink round the edges of the topper with a foam tool.
To finish, trim a 7” x 7” black card blank to 7” x 5” and add the topper to the front.
