I was inspired by the name of the Superman roller coaster, "Ride of Steel", to create these textured photo mats by embossing gray paper from the Sheer Joy Collection. I inked the edges and raised texture with Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
I positioned the photos on top of a paper from the Dream Big line and then pulled out the rest of my PowderPuff Chalking Inks & some arrow stencils - and started to play!!
I used Post It notes to quickly and easily mask off the openings in the stencil that I was not working with at the moment. I applied Razz-Berry Ink on this arrow stencil...
...then used a black pen to outline the arrow before I removed the stencil.
I chose to overlap some of the arrows just for fun:
I love the way the background paper changed the colors of the inks!
I used black dimensional Alphas for the title(s).
I should add that I did not adhere the photos and mats in place until I had finished stenciling the arrows. It is much easier to work without any obstructions!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
