I had to share my next set of whimsical cards
featuring Lavinia Stamps, a Prima Fairy stamp & a Concord & 9th Unicorn stamp.
The cool backgrounds were created using various Distress Inks on a Gell Press Plate.
My Gell Plate still had some spots of paint
which added to the texture of the 'Planet' & the Background.
This gorgeous Fairy is perfect over a Brayered & Stamped Distress Ink Background
directly to the Gell Plate.
This gives that lovely soft impression to the background layers.
I had to picture her in close up!
Another dreamy background that I left quite plain as the colours look so lovely.
Combining same techniques with Prima Fairy stamp this time.
The Background card was tapped onto the Gell Plate after pulling the initial background.
This gives those striped effects which are quite cool.
My second pull of colour from the Gell Plate was really subtle
so I added a bright sun & Unicorn from Concord & 9th.
This gorgeous fairy stands alone on patterned paper
with her wings & background accents twinkling.
They were heat embossed with Opalescent powder.
Older Tim Holtz die cuts & diamante brads complete this simple card.
Hard to see but background font, sprinkles, & wings all twinkle.
This was another interesting background from the Gell Press Plate.
I am amazed how different these cards can look depending on the colour & technique
used for the backgrounds.
Hope you like them. I will share any more that I make soon.
