ID: MC Oct/17 - Easel Uncial Text - ECD Peace - Ornaments card
size: 5"w x 7"H (easel closed)

Created: October 23, 2017
Modified:

I'm taking an Uncial calligraphy class taught by Kerri Forster - 2hrs/week for 4 weeks. One of the exercises we were asked do do was a block of text... I translated that into this card. And I'm using one of my newest Penny Black Xmas stamps. Loving it...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies "Peace"  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

 

 

Scored, folded my metallic Olive green cardstock (Paper-Garden.ca) to create the easel. Cut another piece same size as card and adhered to front.

Created the calligraphic artwork on back cardstock using a white ink (Copic white Opaque mixed with H2) and a 1/4" flat edged brush. When dry painted the negative areas using Finetec metallic watercolors. When that was dry, outlined the letters with a black Sharpie. Adhered to front.

 

 

On the floor: Used my Tim's Stampin Platform to stamp the ornaments using Distress pads. Moved color around with a wet brush. Added a shadow around the ornaments. Dried and restamped using Versamark and clear embossed a couple times.

Die cut the "Peace" from DoCraft gold mirror cardstock  and adhered to ornament piece.

Adhered to floor with 3D foam tape to act as my stopper.
