One of my colour combinations this year is going to be
blue and green. I am always inspired by Alison Bomber (aka Butterfly)
who uses these colours alot in her art so I thought that
I shall have a go. I really love the colours together, but I think
it my mums saying of 'blue and green should never be seen',
I think that it means in clothing, as I think they look gorgeous
I find that using my gelli plate while stamping is so much easier,
I get the right amount of paint on the stamp.
And of course I can use the paint for a print.
I used two tags that I had already used for mopping up, to
use on the leftover pattern on the gelli plate.
I wanted the word Sanctuary and many times trying to ink just that part,
well I decided I would cut it out instead, which means that I could
use another word in that area when using the whole stamp.
As you can see here, I get a nice image with my gelli plate, but I also
get a nice print just using foam or a paint brush, I just find this way quicker.
I used Fresco Guacamole and mixed it with Fresco Satin Glaze to
do my kiss stamping dots (I did a quick tutorial here showing the kiss stamping
with Paperartsy Lin Brown stamps, they are made for this technique lol).
By mixing the glaze in, it helps the paint stay wetter a little longer (not much
as that's the best about Fresco it dries quick and gorgeous),
but long enough to do the kiss stamping.
I had loads left so out came some more mopping up tags, I also
used the flower about, as you can see the opaque paint becomes slightly translucent
but not much.
Right I better be off, I have a day in the craft room so want to be getting inky and painty lol. Starting from this evening the ultra awesome amazing and good friend Julie-Ann Lee will be demonstrating over on the Paperartsy Inspiration Blog and she always makes such gorgeous creations. Also this week Paperartsy shall be showing all their new products which I am so excited about, it started last night with stamps from Darcy Wilkinson who's art and stamps are really out of the box awesome, I can't wait to own some lol.
Happy Crafting :-)
