Forget Your Age!!

Hydi Hoe stamp lovers!  Michele here today with a quick gelli plate background technique tutorial I used on a super fun birthday card.

Viva Las VegaStamps! used:

I started with a piece of watercolor paper that had a book page pieces layer added with some gel.

A little bit of drywall tape for another layer.

Now a couple dots of Dina Wakley acrylic paint on my gelli plate.

Rolled out with the brayer.

Then some stamping on the paint with the awesome wire rings stamp.

Here is what my layered paper picked up.

This layer is finished with a few stamps of the wire ring stamp in archival ink.

I repeated the layering step with another color of Dina Wakley acrylic paint and the writing circles stamp.
This background technique is so fun and really a powerful pop of texture and depth and color.

And just look at the awesomeness of that wire ring stamp!!

It is hard to see in the photos but these polar bears SPARKLE because they are colored with a clear Wink of Stella.  Who doesn't love a polar bear in a tutu riding a unicycle??!!!

I hope you are inspired to try this background technique and that you share what you create over in our Facebook group!!

Until next time...get inky!!
