Happy Monday! Thank you for stopping by for my I Brake For Stamps Monday share! I have a little bit of tutorial to share with you today so, you can go ahead and plan to get inky!
I've been goofing around with my gelli plate lately---inspired by my high school friend and now, facebook friend, JoAnne! (Heeyyy, JoAnne!!) I used it to create my background. In just a few steps, you can do it too!
I started by combining several Distress Inks using this itty bitty brayer:
diamond background stamp, using a greenish memento ink. I, then, stamped it directly onto the inked gelli plate:
I am a big fan of mixed media. This has a similar feel, but so much quicker and with similarly interesting results. It's perfect for card making and creating multicolored backgrounds and single layered cards!
After the background dried, I stamped, using Archival Black ink, over the top with one of my all time favorite silhouette images from I Brake For Stamps. It's called Floral Silhouette and I just love the delicate Queen Anne's lace among the other images.
To finish things off, I added a sentiment, also from I Brake For Stamps, from Inspirational Plate #2.
I hope this finds you well and about to get inky! When you are busy shopping around the I Brake For Stamps store, don't forget to use my coupon code: SAVE10JANE.
