Embrace love

Hello everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create GDT post I have made a card. I have used an older stencil and one of Tracy's brand-new stamp sets. 

and here is how:

I made a gelli print with this stencil and alcohol inks. This is great fun but makes a terrible mess of your stencils.. 
You put the stencil on your gelli plate, drop the alcohol ink over the top, I used a green and a blue, use a brayer to roll over the stencil. Wait till it is dry, then take off the stencil. Brayer on a thin coat of whit paint and take a print. 

Next I stamped this large heart on the card with Versafine Clair and heat embossed it with clear powder. 

I then coloured in the heart using water colour markers. I added some grey around the heart to make it stand out more.  I used the big stamp from the set to add some random stamping too. 

I stamped the word love from the same stamp set on black card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white powder because I wanted it to go with the piece of washi tape I chose. 

Here you see it finished. I added some doodling with a black pen too and I really like how it came out. 

I have used the following AALL & Create products:
Stencil #78 - Cloister Grille by Olga Heldwein
Washi tape #6 - Crafty by Autour de Mwa
Stamp set #453 - Heart Grunge by Tracy Evans

  1. What a luscious card, Corrie. That is such a favourite colour combination of mine, and I never could resist a heart-shape on anything. Lovely!

  2. Ik zag net deze kaart voorbijkomen in mijn reader (loop een beetje achter) en wat zie ik... ? een hart ... geloof me als ik zeg dat ik op de 19e (art journal spread wel een weekje eerder gemaakt) een blogpost voor Rubber Dance heb geplaatst met.. ja .. ook zo'n hoge hart. Wel anders gebruikt als vorm... maar ik moest er ineens bij denken dat je misschien denkt dat ik dit eerst zag. Is dus niet zo.. grappig he?!
