When I needed to make card for I knew I wanted something bright to for this time of year! What better that Paper Artsy Fresco paints…and my Gelli plate.
I used Bora Bora, Limelight and Bougainvillea and 'blobbed' them over my Gelli plate and used my brayer to blend them….used a circle stencil and then stamped into the paint with some of Emma Godfrey's French set EEG07, pulled off my print….then we went away!
With the birthday looming ever closer when we came back I cut out a square and stamped around the edge with another stamp from EEG07 using Picked Raspberry DI.
I stamped two of my favourite birds by Jo Firth Young (JM20) into two of the circles and a sentiment (EM 22) in another circle.
I added some little random doodles from Jo's JOFY25 and some of the circles from Emma's french set and I was almost ready!
I coloured the birds and the doodles with Distress markers and inked around the edge with Peacock feathers DI before mounting the print.
It has now been popped into envelope ready for the post tomorrow!
I hope I am not too late to get this into the Mono Printing Challenge at Paper Artsy
I'll be catching up on some blog hopping tonight I hope!
Thanks for looking, Chris
