gelli print background

My new addiction is to create cards with the huge amount of gelli prints I made in the last year or so.

I used a gelli print as a background for my card and I stamped the gelli print with Design by Ryn stamps and Artemio stamps (feather). The sentiment is from Indigoblu.
I heat embossed the stamped images on the background to create more texture.

The new challenge at Simon Says Stamp is to create inky backgrounds, I love creating my own backgrounds with inks and paints.

Inky backgrounds

I love the new challenge at Simon Say Stamp.
I love creating my own backgrounds and I love inks and paint.

I swiped some white cardstock with some dye inkpads, It gave a grunge look to the cardstock,
Then, I stamped some images to create a collage-style card.
I put glossy accents to some of the images to create more texture.

Designs by Ryn and peerless watercolours

I made a background with peerless watercolours and I added Designs by Ryn stamps.
I also used some white pigment ink through stencils to give more interest to the background.
I really love how this card turned out!
I used Gold glitter embossing powder to give more texture to the stamped images.
The sentiment is from Indigoblu  (UK). I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock coloured with Distress Paints.

Gelli prints with stencils

I made some gelli plate prints with stencils, then I added some more texture by using  stencils and black paint on the final gelli plate print.
I was inspired by the post PaperArtsy published yesterday,  I followed some of the techniques, then I added my own twist to them. If you like stencils, check the Paperarsty blog post.

Then, I decided to turn the gelli prints into a collage and I added a motivational quote.

This is the final result.

Autumn journal page

Some weeks ago, I made a journal page to celebrate autumn.
I used patterned paper, Tim Holtz dies (letters) and a stamp from Impression Obsession. I coloured the image with watercolours.

Christmas postcard

This year I have tried something different and I have made some watercoloured Christmas cards.
I used a watercolor paper postcard from Fabriano.
I masked the edges and I stamped it with Flourishes Stamps (retired). Then, I watercoloured the images with Winsor and Newton watercolours. I stamped the pine leaves with Distress Inks.

The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I embossed it with gold embossing powder.

I added a bit of bling by spritzing pearlized water on the postcard, it created a snow effect that is difficult to show in the photo.

Botanical journal page

I made a journal page with a botanical stamp set from Tim Holtz and Stampers anonymous.
I really love it.
I used many different techniques, I inked the feathers with distress ink and I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I coloured and stamped the bird and the eggs with distress markers to achieve a more natural look.

The background has been coloured with many different shades of Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals (powdered pigment).

I will post this on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.
