Hi all. This latest card was made featuring a recently acquired Chocolate Baroque Stamp called Canary Bird Rose over a gelli print background.
I started with the gelli print. I got the inspiration from Heather Telford who used a piece of corrugated cardboard to make the grid pattern. I improvised a bit and embossed a series of vertical lines on to a thick piece of card and etched them with a ball tool as deeply as possible. I used lime green and orange acrylic paint and my brayer to spread them both and pressed the embossed card on to it in both directions, and after lifting it away I thought it was a bit dark so I went over it with a bit more of the lime green which lifted some of the original paint off, and when I pulled the print this is what I ended up with which I love. I then stamped the flower using Versafine Toffee Ink and I coloured it with my Inktense Pencils using a waterbrush to move the colour around and blend. I finished by adding the sentiment using Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder, and added a bit of Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink blended around the edges and white gel pen on the stamens before adding it to my usual 6" square white card.
Thank you for dropping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
