I love this digital image from Meljen's Designs. When I printed it, I made it big enough to fit this 12x12 canvas. Colored it with pencils. Did my canvas background with stencils and ink. They are hard to see, but there are some stamped snowflakes on the background too.
Had these foam die cut snowflakes in my stash. Inked them and then glittered them.
This is definitely one of my favorite canvases! Love it.
I love making gelli prints. I've used a variety of types of paints. The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints. The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate.
On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral
stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose,
Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting
them on the plate.
This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and
Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.
New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.
This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!! Except you created it yourself!
The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes.
I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
Entering the following challenges:Mojo Monday challenge 464-last card is usi…
I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.
I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up. Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!
I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it!
Does that happen to you?
I used some new products from Deco Arts.
Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister.
See the tutorial at the end of the post.

**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
