Thanks for stopping by.
Here’s a lovely new stencil which was aired for the first time on TV last week.
I want to show you how to create a layered doily look…
Spread Latte Adirondack over the Gelli Plate with the brayer.
Lift the Gelli Plate on its Mega Mount
and plant the ink on a sheet of large Gelli Card.
Peel the card off for your first creamy layer.
Make two of these.
Spread Wild Honey over the Gelli Plate,
Scrunch up a sheet of copy paper and pad it over the inky
and lay the Gelli Plate down on the Latte card, in the same position as the Latte print. You will see a fabulous mottles effect. I did this with a lovely pink and the blue tits on YouTube too.
Here’s the link, if you want to watch:
Do the two.
Now comes the stencil.
Lay the clean stencil on the clean Gelli Plate.
Brayer Black Soot Distress ink over it.
If the stencil is oily, from baby wipe cleaning etc, take a paper towel and just wipe it clean while it is sitting on the Gelli.
Peel the inky stencil off the Gelli Plate and place it inky side down on one of the yellow mottled prints you have already made.
I cut the print to 7 x 7 to fit the stencil first.
Then I ran this through my E-Bosser.
I did it a couple of times, so that the black was darker.
What I like is that the Black goes more of an Egyptian Gold than black, because it is layered up on the yellow.
Cut out the heart, following the scalloped edge with the scissors. This gives you a doily effect.
When you lay the heart down on the second mottled print,
you get the illusion that the yellow background runs straight through behind the deer etc.
Trim the back-print, and edge with a matching promarker.
Mount on white.
Easy and effective, isn’t it.
There’s another delightful Stencil to make up the pair:
Also works a treat in the same way.
This one is fab for wedding ands anniversaries, too.
