Sweet Poppy Stencils "Pumpkin & Pumpkin Vine" Card - inspired by an Eileen Godwin on-line workshop

Eileen Godwin has inspired me over the years in so many ways.  I decided to book one of her on-line workshops that she had advertised recently, as I really liked the pieces she had made. The workshop I subscribed to was #15 - all about inky layers. 

Because this was a workshop, I am not going to detail the process to make the card.  I have swapped out the background script stamp and the main feature stamps that Eileen used as I didn't have them, so although the background is reasonably close to that of Eileen's sample, the over all finished card looks quite different.

Here's a list of the products I used

Ranger Archival Ink

  1. Beautiful use of the stencil and stunning colours Sam, a real autumn feel here x

  2. The white elements look beautiful against your background layers

  3. This is beautiful Sam and love the background and I can see you have outlined some of the shapes in white..I recognise that from Eileen's past videos, and great contrast with the white image, and another interesting idea with some of the image outlines in black and some in white. x
