Thanks so much for all your lovely comments. They are very much appreciated. As you might have noticed there is a Blog Hop going on over at the STAMPlorations Blog. This time around it's all about stencils, and the STAMPlorations girls got bags of ideas, tips, tricks and techniques to share. You can find the projects from Day 1 here.
Now to today's project I want to share. I used one of the Gelli Plate backgrounds I created the other day using the ARTplorations Stencil Shutters in combination with the Blossom Overture and Hashtag Authentic stamp sets. Here it is:
First I put down a layer of metallic silver acrylic paint on my Gelli Plate on which I put my stencil. Then I spread a little mustard acrylic paint over part of the stencil before removing the stencil and taking my first print, which is the one I used for this card. I still need to record a video on how exactly I make my prints, for now Shery has a quick demonstration here which is similar to what I do.
I stamped, coloured (Promarkers: gold, tulip yellow, honeycomb, burnt orange, pear green) and fuzzy cut my rose from the Blossom Overture set, heat embossed the sentiment amazing and stamped the you are in green. I then layered my elements on a green base card and attached some twine and metal charm to finish.
This card is part of the Inspiration Post over at the STAMPlorations Blog.
