Hello and happy Tuesday! Here is again my daily art practice piece for day 66 with the Artist Almanac 2022.
I again used the Necolor 2 crayons on the backgroud with a green and white Posca pen. To that I added “Aloe” Gloss Spray splatters and fussy cut some gel printed pieces & paper residues into “pizza slices” and created similar circles like on the almanac page. I finished the piece off with Klartext stamps again.
Here are some detail photos:
Orange is a colour that I rarely use. Not one of my favorite go-to colours. But combined with the other bits, I can live with it :).
Hello and happy Wednesday! We all know how it feels to draw the short straw… This card is exactly about that. I did a junk art / ugly art style card with Gloss Sprays, stenciling, gel printing, embossing enamel and some Dina Wakley collage collective pieces, combined with Klartext stamps.
This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorites! It suits so many everyday situations and has perfect sentiments for those “not so perfect” days. A mixed media heavy background works so well with this stamp set, too. I really enjoyed creating this card!
And I even managed to add in some bits from my junk bags. I´ ve previously used the ribbon for gel printing and saved the inked pieces for later – they work so well on this card and nothing goes to waste!
Hope your Wednesday was great!? I had a really nice day chatting with a friend, who I haven´ t seen in ages! By the way, If you´ d like to see a card video tutorial for a change, do stop by on my blog on Sunday, when I´ ll be sharing a set of cards created for Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Hello everyone and welcome to the STAMPlorations May Stencil Challenge reveal. It´s again an new, fresh, month and that always means that new challenges go live on STAMPlorations! I hope I can inspire you to join in with us at the Stencil challenge this month with my happy card.
For the May challenge I played with my Gelli Arts gel plate and my stencils. I love doing these mixed media backgrounds using the stencils. It´s always so exciting to see what kind of results come of out gel printing play time. This is also a really fun way of playing with ones stencils, by the way :).
For this one I used the Peacock Feathers stencil from my stencil line at STAMPlorations in combination with a gelli plate and skin toned and orange toned acrylic paints. After creating the background I did a few smaller prints with a set of small square gel plates and Art Marks 3 stamp set by STAMPlorations. The then became the background for the stamped flower images. Which were stamped with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and black stamp ink.
After that I just fussy cut the images and created the flower cluster onto the card. For finishing touches I added a Clear Sticker (also by STAMPlorations) sentiment.
That´s it! Now is again your turn to get creative with stencils. Please remember to play by the rules!! They are always listed at the end of the challenge and are really simple to follow, so remember, if you want to be in for the prizes, play according to the rules :).
Thus, I´ll keep today´s post short and wish you all a lovely week! It should get really nice temperatures here this week – so much looking for sunshine and flowers. At least something nice to look forward to!!!
Hello and happy Sunday! I´d love to share a fun card idea with you that will always result in unique backgrounds that will never ever be the same!
Just grab a pile of stencils and your gel plate and create backgrounds with them! Take pastel colours for a softer look or go crazy with colour, like I did here! A red and yellow acrylic paint combination is a bold one :).
And then after finishing a few backgrounds, just grab some stamps and clear stickers (or rub-ons) and finish off your card. For this one I used my Peacock Feathers stencil with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and Hey Sunshine! clear stickers.
And while you grab your gel plate (mine is by Gelli Arts, by the way), make sure you make several prints at one sitting. That way you will have a bigger pile of prints ready and waiting for you, when you need a quick and fun card or when card-creating inspiration hits you.
By picking more toned down colours the overall look of the card totally changes. So just go with the colours you (or the card recipient) like :).
