Gelli Plate Tag

This is new for me, I wasn't quite sure that the Gelli Plate was for me BUT I LOVE IT!!!

I was asked to choose my favourite mask from Splodgeaway - obviously this was an almost impossible task as I have lots and lots of favourites.

I settled on the flower creator which I find extremely versatile.  Perfect to use for cutting out and layering flowers and of course all the masks are amazing to use on the Gelli plate.

I love the colours on this Tag too - I used red, yellow and white for this project and, yes I know red and yellow make orange, but I was absolutely delighted with the tones of colour I arrived at.

Hope you like it as much as I do.

Pan pastels and Indigoblu

This is a card I made for a very special friends birthday.

I used Panpastels for the background and the lovely stamps are from Indigoblu.

I then matted and layered the sentiment with foam pads, to give a bit of height, onto the top left hand corner.

Really hope she likes it.

Another butterfly Twinchie

Couldn't miss an opportunity to make a glitter butterfly Twinchie.

This will be entered into the Twinchie Challenge blog.

Butterfly Twinchie

I've incorporated two new items (new for me!) in this little Twinchie.

Firstly the background was taken from my very first Gelli Print background.

Secondly, I made the butterfly embellishments myself!  I took a piece of acetate, taped over it a Splodge Away butterfly mask, filled it in with glitter paste, removed the mask, then left it overnight to set (the difficult bit) and then cut around the butterflies and fixed them to my Twinchie.

Finished off with a white pen.

Thanks for looking xx

Paper Clay flower

I'm a big fan of using the Sam Poole embossing folder to make three dimensional flowers as demonstrated by Julia Watts.

I'm also a big fan of Martha Stewart Paper Clay as demonstrated by Mel Heaton.

Would the two work together I thought???

See photo's below to find out.

Hels Sheridan also has the instructions for constructing this flower on her blog - wonder if paper clay would work in my Melt Pot???

Next I need to stamp on the clay before I emboss it.  I now need to experiment with colours and colouring mediums.

Next time I need to stamp on the dry clay before I emboss it.  I'm off now to spray, ink, glitter etc my flower to see which works best.

Thanks for taking a look and I'm very grateful for any messages you leave xxx

Indigoblu Tag

I made this tag with Indigoblu Nature 1 stamps.

I love green and yellow together and for this tag used Distress Inks Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade.  I also used these inks to colour the organza ribbon.

I used Stazon for the stamping onto the tag and also onto acetate for the butterfly.  I coloured the back of the acetate with green and yellow Promarkers.

The tag and the words were edged with Black Soot DI.

Slight touching up with a white pen finished the project.
