I did a few samples for this set of Stencils and Stamps for Clarity Stamp on Create & Craft TV. I was enjoying playing with everything and mixing and matching the stencils and stamps. I also did a lot of play with some new techniques - not major breakthrough techniques but just mixing it up a little with inks and paints etc. Its best if I just briefly explain as I go along. I won't show all of the cards I did here today, I will maybe do another post later in the week.
|This is a Paint Gelli Print with some grungy bits left on the Gelli Plate. I then stamped into the leaf with the Clarity Philigraphy Stamps that go with the Stencil after finger painting a white background to stamp onto. .|
|This is the top end of the Tag, I made this by using Grunge Paste through the Clarity Abstract Stencil|
|This is a close up of the Tag|
|Now this one I am quite proud of, the reason I am proud of it is because apart from the stamping it was all just done in one pull off the Gelli Plate in INK. Not bad is it?? Of course its the stencil print that makes it possible.|
|Again this is another one that was an Ink Print off the Gelli Plate I was asked by a good friend if I used ink much on the Gelli Plate, I said that I didn't because anything I would want to do on there I could already do off the Clarity Mat.But then I thought about it a bit more and realised that I wasn't being very open minded.I love to play with paint on the Gelli Plate see but I decided to take a different approach to using ink on the Gelli Plate. I have used it before and discovered my little "slip and slide" pattern thing with the stamps but then I hadn't taken it much further. So when I started to use inks on the Gelli Plate in the same way I would use paint I started to produce some quite exciting results. So I will be playing a lot more . This print above is a Shadow print of what I had left on my Gelli Plate. |
This card was made with an Ink Print off the Gelli Plate and then I stamped on top with the lovely Philigraphy Stamps
Inks work in a completely different way on the Gelli Plate and that means you can get completely different results using the same methods as you would with paint. Again I will come back on this one later to show you what I mean.
So I do have more to show but I will leave it here for now.
I must say it was a great show again with lots of great techniques, Barbara Gray is such and inspiration and I am so happy to be part of the Design Team because I look at all the gorgeous work my team mates produce and I am amazed. xxx
