Day 2 at the NEC was busy busy busy.
Ask me how me feet are, I dare you.
a Gelli Plate blog, using the Festive Stencils
5 for the price of 4,
They come with a free Stencil folder.
So place the Gelli Plate on a Mega Mount, and then place the bauble inny of the stencil onto the clean plate.
Spread a thin layer of China Blue paint over the plate and bauble, lifting half of it off again, with crumpled paper.
Next spread Inky Pool paint over the Gelli Plate and the bauble stencil with the brayer,
place the Leafy Swirl stencil on the wet paint, blot with copy paper and lift the punchinella.
Wait for the paint to dry before you lift the leafy swirl stencil,
Then lift the stencil and blot immediately.
See how the paint underneath the stencil was still wet ?
Now for the 3rd layer.
Spread a layer of Caramel paint over the Gelli plate and bauble stencil with your brayer.
Remove the bauble stencil,
place the card on the wet paint,
Rub the back, and pull your print.
Rub the back, rub the feet, rub the neck….
Using the other part of the stencil,
cover up the outside area.
Use inks and our fabby brushes to create a lovely night sky.
Torn paper for the snow.
White paint on a mini blender through the punchinella
for a great sky effect.
Now for the 3-D trick…
Use a black pencil along the upper edge on the inside of the aperture.
Snowball fight using the kids from the
Wee Folk Christmas stamp set.
Tuck him in behind the stencil…
Add a few trees behind the hills
using the same Black Archival ink pad.
Oh, hang on! Snow!
We need a little snowfall.
Dib dib dib with white paint and a small Groovi tool.
Hope you like it.
This was done at the NEC yesterday,
with a bunch of lovely ladies kindly reminding me to take photos
A delightful hour spent in the company of Jilly and friends.
But now I must go to sleep.
