Greetings! It is Day 3 of the Gel Press and Sassy & Crafty Collaboration, and not only do I have a fun card to share, but I will be on the Sassy & Crafty FB main page for a Live today at noon EST. I’ll be sharing some ways on how to use a Gel Press with stencils. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and I hope you’ll join me.
For this card, I used 2 monoprints and Sassy & Crafty’s “Just Chillin’” stamp set. My yellow-green layer was made with the 6×6 Gel Press, as well as the Repeat Circles Gel Press. I used acrylic pant from Golden and DecoArt Media. The white shapes are from an old foam stamp I was experimenting with.
The heart is from the Gel Press Petites set called Lovely Days. On it, I used Sassy & Crafty’s Chevron stencil as well as some bubble wrap, for added texture. Once again, I used acrylic paint. This print was created after I had used the heart plate a few times that day, so there was a little bit of left over paint from previous prints, which I think really adds character. Both of these prints were made on plain old copy paper. After I cut and trimmed my prints, I stamped my sentiment and the tiny hearts from the “Just Chillin‘” stamp set with VersaFine Clair Ink in Twilight. I painted my card base with DecoArt Media’s Mister in Turquoise Shimmer.
I love these bright colors together, as well as the texture created by the monoprints. I really enjoyed using these 2 companies together, as I think they make a great pairing. I really hope you’ll join me today (11/14/20) at noon EST to watch me make some monoprints live on the Sassy & Crafty Page. If you can’t make it, you can always watch the replay. Meanwhile, don’t forget to head over to the Sassy & Crafty Instagram to check out the huge prize that’s up for grabs. I’d like to thank Gel Press for sending us their amazing Gel Plates. I am absolutely hooked on using them, and you’ll be seeing many, many prints from me. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
