Good morning all. Well I dont know about where you live but although its drying up here now the day started with torrential rain and very windy. Good excuse to stay in and craft. Yesterday I shared with you my first Gelli Plate project that I did at a workshop with Annette Lee and today I would like to show you another of the pieces I made but first I would like to say a big thank you for all your comments. I so appreciate them .Like the gelli plate one I made the basics at the class and then finished off at home.
We were very lucky because part of the package for the days workshop was one of the new Clarity Stamps and mask. While we were playing with them a very similar product was being launched on Create and Craft. This stamp set includes the sillouette leaf and positive leafe and also a flower spray which I used on a different card and will share with you tomorrow. Useing various auntumnal shades of distress inks we stamped the sillouette stamp radomly from top left to bottom right. Now this was new for me. Wait for it. Can you believe I have had a speedball brayer in my stash for absolutely years and never used it! Well its true and it came out on Saturday and I brayered the top right and bottom left of card. I was very proud of the result. Next I stamped 5 leaves and painted with distress inks. When I got home I highlighted the leaves with guilding wax down the veins. Finally I stamped the sentiment. Oh I forgot I went round the edges with black soot. A must to make your card pop. It was then mounted onto a yellow card just slighly bigger than the project and finally onto a 7x7 card.
I will be back tomorrow if I can with the final project. In the meanwhile.
