Funky Fossil June Pre-Release Peeks - She Is Fierce

Today's peek at the Funky Fossil June release is just possibly my favourite of the bunch. She Is Fierce has four different sassy faces, a flower and a couple of strong positive empowerment sentiments.

All four of my cards today use stencilled backgrounds with the image stamped over - definitely my go to technique at the moment. 

I started by masking off a strip down the right hand side and used the Abstract Bamboo Background stencil placed horizontally to create the stripes. Next I added the pink through the Round Tree stencil and then stamped the face on top. The flower was stamped, coloured and hand cut and placed in her hair.

Stamps – She Is Fierce, Small Print
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, black soot
Pens: Miya oil pencils

I pretty much repeated the design for my next card, but placed the stripes at the bottom instead and used a different face and the Cellular stencil behind it.

Both these two cards have shown that you can be selective about how much of the card front is covered by a stencil. You just need to place the stencil to the side or simply just ink through a small section.

And then there are times when the stencil is just so gorgeous like Geo Flowers you really want to use it in its entirety.

And as I knew which sentiment I was going to use from the small Print set I inked through it in full colour! And this face is the one that has become my favourite of the four in the She Is Fierce set.

Stencil: Geo Flowers
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, peacock feathers, wilted violet, mustard seed

My final card today uses the Forest Foliage stencil, three ink colours and a sentiment from the She Is Fierce set. Can you see how easily the sentiment from here would match with the Small Print stamps? I'm thinking multiple sentiments on a scrapbook page.

For this card the face was only partly stamped over the stencilled background to enable me to add colour to the hair and face using Copic pens and Miya oil pencils. Way to go to practise putting on make up!
