Elizabeth Craft Designs ~ New England Stone Wall & Gate

Hello Friends,

Today I am excited to share with you this adorable little scene I created using numerous Elizabeth Craft Designs' products.

To begin with I created a mask with a piece of scrap paper and 4 hand punched scalloped circles.

Using Tim Holtz Distress Inks along with his sponge applicators use the mask in various angles to create the clouds leaving a little white between each layer.

Next you will use the dies from the Susan's Garden Country Scapes - New England Stone Wall & Gate. This set comes with three dies. The Gate die was cut from white Soft Finish card stock. The background piece is also die cut from white Soft Finish card stock and then inked with a distressed inks to create a mortar look.

Using multiple Distress Inks color a piece of white Soft Finish card stock before die cutting your stones. By using multiple colors it makes the final little pieces look like actual stones. Below shows the wall half way completed. Using Elizabeth Craft Designs' Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets and ECD's tweezers makes this challenging step a piece of cake.

The stamps used for this project came from this wonderful stamp and die set called Birch Forest from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  They have been colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies, which are sold separately. 

The stamped and die cut images were popped up using foam tape. This gives it a wonderful texture.
