I am back with my second card for the Designer Challenge and this months challenge is to show off the STAGE IT STENCILS. Karen has 12 stencils in her line and you can see them all HERE.
I will tell you the story about how this card come about, I was "chatting" to Karen on Facebook and saying that I didn't know what I was going to make and that I was going into shed to watch Game of Thrones and I would see what I made. To that Karen said "Well obviously you need to make an Iron Throne using the Adirondack Chair! Ha." that got the old cogs in my brain working and that is the inspiration around my GAME OF BONES card.
The front is mega simple. I downloaded the Game of Thrones font and printed it on cardstock.
Cut from the Accordion Fancy Label decorator shape and edged with ink.
The paper is from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Through the Lens STONE paper pack.
This paper pack is perfect for this theme, especially the bleakness of Winterfell.
The words also a tongue in cheek bow down to "you know nothing Jon Snow" line
that is used several times in the programme by Ygritte.
Here you can see a fun Buster conversion, I was pondering making a
Kalisi from Whiskers the cat! But went for one of my favourite characters Jon Snow.
I have used the Petite Flourish Stencil, another decorator piece from the Fancy
Accordion, Buster the dog, Adirondack Chair Pop up, Props 4 for one of the bones.
I used the stencil two ways on this card. I inked through with a brown ink pad on the wording panel and I also used Minc Reactive Screen Ink and foiled it with Holographic Foil.
