Today, some inspiration from the non-France DT members!
First off from Ellie Knol:
It’s so fun to get a little messy with some mixed-media!
I started with applying Golden glassy gel over a stencil.
I then added watercolor, adding all sorts of color, and taking them partially away again or sometimes some more water so it could mix and run over the paper. … until I was satisfied. I adhered the cheesecloth with a little gel medium, partially, so it could stay 3D a bit. I stamped the shells and seahorse on seperate paper and cut them out. After coloring the shells, I added a watered down layer of gesso over it, to be able to make them part of the background, and adhered them partially underneath the cheesecloth. I stamped a script with a grey ink onto the background, to 1 side.
The seahorse is the focal now, on an exremely colorful background, but I like it!
see for ued stamps my own blog!
Now onto: Tracy Evans
I went for a rustic Christmas card using the Christmas Tree stamp. I embossed the background with a heart embossing folder and then dry brushed over the design with Gesso. I then added a second panel and applied Embossing Paste through a holly stencil to add a further layer of interest. The Christmas Tree was then stamped with Vermillion Archival Ink, applying Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. Three dimensional flowers have been added, applying touches of Gesso to the petals. To complete I added ‘Tis the season’ to the bottom of my card.
