The first card used a print that was made with the circle Gel Press Petite with Distress Oxides. I used this cool Dragon Scales stencil on it. Based on the colors of the print, I chose Copic markers to color in my fairy, which is from AAll & Create’s Lil Magic stamp set.
Behind the fairy, I stamped the AALL & Create Reverse Stars with Peacock Feathers and Broken China Distress Oxides. I aged the background a bit too, but I encourage you to check out the FB Live to see how.
I love how this card ended up. The Gel Press Print was a fantastic jumping off point, and guided the way through the completion of the card. We were having such a good time that we decided to make a second card…
The print for this card was made on my 6×6 Gel Press, with acrylic paints. I wasn’t in love with the print, and I knew I needed to add things on top of it. The group and I decided that using this whale from AALL & Create’s Sea Life stamp set was the way to go.
I cut down my print and stamped the whale image on to it with VersaFine Clair Ink in Twilight and embossed it with a clear powder. Then, we chose an additional print to stamp the whale on again with the same ink so that I can add pop it on to the first. I used some colored pencils to add some detail and popped it on to the original. Then, I added some Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops to all of the hexagons in the background.
I really love both of these cards. I especially like that we used two Gel Press prints that I didn’t love, and turned them into two very unique cards.
