Joyful Wishes


So glad you stopped by.
Meet today's card.  
A simple one using a brayered 'roll off' sheet I keep when Gel Plate printing.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • Once again, I went into my stash of inked up paper and found this one.  I had rolled some acrylic paint onto white cardstock while printing with my Gel Plate.  Like I have mentioned before, I like to keep them even if they look like quite a mess when you are rolling them off.
  • I placed the paper into my Misti and stamped the Poinsettia Collage with some Versafine Clair ink then clear heat embossed it as I wanted to add some more paint over the top and didn't want to smear the ink.
  • The roll off sheet was pretty dark, so I added some white with my Posca Paint pen in places to help the pattern emerge a bit.  I splattered using that pen too.
  • I cut the stamped image out and glued it onto a piece of navy cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.
  • I glued some pearls onto the flower center and pop dotted the sentiment strip (pre-printed) over the background.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Wonderful find in your stash and an artsy and unique card. Great accents with the white and a fabulous Christmas card Karen x.

A beautiful arty look Karen and the acrylic roll off piece works brilliantly with this collage sty poinsettia, and love the bits of white to emphasise some of the sleaves, and finished with three sweet little pearls and the white on black sentiment strip is just perfect. x
