Finally we have some nice weather here in the Netherlands and that makes me so very happy. Unfortunately I have to wait for about three weeks till my vacation starts. But it's also very nice to enjoy this beautiful weather even when I have to work. But enough about the weather, let's move on to the order of the day! The new challenge from Simon Says Stamp and Show, which is "a little stamping". This can be taken as loosely as you like. Do a little bit of stamping, or use little stamps. Whatever comes to mind.
I just did some little text stamping. Finally I had the courage to play with my Gelli Plate again. So glad I did that, because I had a blast. For me it was really a learning process, figuring out what works and what doesn't. My conclusion is that what works for me the best is, plain printing paper and Distress Paints.
Everything I tried worked and was beautiful, well that was so very exciting. Then the Gelli Plate is lots of fun to work with!
I have worked with the stunning Bert stencil from Dyan Reavley. The great thing of these stencils is that they also contain the negatieves. So you can make very cool effects.
The left side I've made the print after I took the print of the Bert's that are on the right page. The stencil contains lots of paint to take a print out of it too. After the paint dried I did some messing around with watered acrylic paint to make some paint splatters and used other stencils from Dyan for the black letters and numbers. Then I placed back the stencil and did some little text stamping inside the Bert's
Like I said the right side is the outcome of the first print made with 3 colors Distress Paint. You must be careful with this paint, because it's very liquid, but the property of these paints are that the will marbleize and not so much blend. Which is a very nice property to work with the Gelli Plate.
