Mannequin, Clocks, & Roses Card

Hello BPM Fans,
Today's card has a stamped background, as well as, stamped embellishments.  The background was done simply in black & white. Black & white plus one additional color is a great choice for this style of genre.

The key to creating a layered effect is to use the technique called masking. Masking enables you to achieve the effect of one image behind another. Stamp the same image a second time on scratch paper and cut out. Place the mask over the first stamped image which serves to protect it and then stamp a design overlapping it. Part of the image will be on the mask and when removed, you reveal that one image appears behind the other creating a layered look. Take the plunge and create your own distressed vintage masterpiece.

Other Supplies:
  • black ink pad
  • pink ink pad
  • sponge applicator
  • clear mounting block
  • paper roses
  • gems 
  • liquid adhesive
  • pearl dimensional paint
  • card base 5x7"
1. Stamp the mannequin image and the set of wings onto white cardstock using black ink. Stamp the rose image twice onto white cardstock once using black ink and once using pink ink. Carefully, cut out all the images and set aside.

2.  Tear the edges of the rose image and apply pink ink.  Mount the pink rose over the intact black image.  Apply pink ink around the edges of the mannequin using a sponge applicator.

3. Use black ink to stamp 3 different size clocks directly onto the distressed card base. Make masks of the clocks on scratch paper, cut them out, and place them over the clock. Next, stamp the script image overlapping the mask to fill in the open spaces between clocks.

(Practice assembling the cluster of elements but do not adhere them yet.)

4. Tie a faux bow with pink organza ribbon and attach it vertically on the left side of the rose embellishment adhering the tails to the backside.  Add 2 clocks behind the stamped embellishments and assemble the cluster of elements but do not adhere them.  Add small accent words to the background by stamping them with black ink.

5. Adhere all the main elements in the center of the card to create a cluster. All elements should be touching and/or overlapping to create interest and added depth.  Embellish with paper roses (1 large & 3 small) and a selection of small daisies. Adhere gems to the centers of the daisies. Use dimensional paint to create faux pearls and add a generous scattering of random clustered dots.
