Hi friends, I wanted to share a technique that I have just came across, while chatting to some crafting friends over on the Creative Team. I’ve never thought of trying this before and I’m so happy with the results.
To make my card I got out my gelli plate and brayer, used Acrylic Paints in Oranges, yellow and Mixing White. I love adding texture to my prints so got out some bubble wrap and dabbed some texture using the mixing white. Pulled my print on Sheena Douglas Stamping Card 300gsm. There is lots of videos on YouTube showing how to use a gelli plate.
I set aside to dry and once completely dry I popped my print into my inkjet printer face down and printed Background 4 of Honeycomb Backgrounds onto my white card. Then I layered onto black cardstock and mounted onto 5”x7” Kraft card base.
I printed off the scene from Sweet Like Honey and coloured in with my Promarkers using
- Soft Peach
- Raw Sienna
- Ice Grey 5,3,1
- Blender Pen
I had printed off the scene twice so I could fussy cut them both and layer ontop each other. Then put some foam tape on the back to add dimension to all the bees and the honeycomb. I printed off the sentiment and used the stencil designed by Angie Blom (BeeCandy) to create honeycombs over my sentiment. I blended Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed Distress Ink. Layered onto black card and added foam tape to adhere.
Here’s my completed card. What do you think. I’m in love with the fact I can now make my own prints then run them through my printer 🥰❤️
That’s all from me today. I would love to know your comments. Thanks for stopping by and take care ❤️. Kirsty
