Good afternoon to you all on this wet, drizzly Sunday. Can't think of anything better to do then haul out the craft goodies.
I have received my gelli plate and had a little go yesterday. I need to experiment more with some different colours I think, although I was pleased with the outcome. I need to invest in some more paint colours though. Spending shall commence on pay day :-).
Although I have mentioned my gelli plate I am not blogging about that today. I am trying to dig out stamps and stash etc that I either have not yet used or not used for a long time.
I used papermill linen card stock and inked all the back grounds with Tim Holtz distress inks.
I stamped using a fairy from Katy sue designs, sentiment from papermania. The edging is the texture stamp from Lavinia.
I versa marked the edges of the sentiment and outer heart and rubbed on some gold mica powder.
The textured background is from a papermania embossing folder that I bought for a pound at a craft show (love a bargain). As well as inking the embossed card I splattered some water and blotted with kitchen roll and again rubbed in some mica powder. I haven't used mica powders for ages and have a feeling they will out a bit more often.
I added ribbon from my stash and made my flowers from the x-cut flower die set, which I inked and rubbed in mica powder. Topped off with some of my favourite liquid pearls. Yes I am indeed very shimmery this weekend.
Hope everyone has had a craftastic weekend.
Love and hugs. X x x x
