Good morning. I thought I would blog you the birdies card I did for the last Claritystamp Show on Sunday 1st March.
I used the gelli plate for this one to do the reflection of the birds and to do the background.
I marked the long middle line on the back of my card as a guide and then stamped in versafine the birds onto the gelli plate. I then pulled the print.
I stamped the birds directly above the image then masked both of them off.
I inked the gelli plate up with green and blue adirondack ink and on one half of the gelli plate I dabbed it with crinkled paper to hopefully get a watery effect. I then pulled a print and my line marker had worked well!
I removed the masks and coloured the birds using the spectrum noir pencils making sure that the birds in the reflection were paler than the ones above. I also added a bit of green shading around the birds legs and some in the reflection.
I trimmed the card slightly so it just fitted the birds in length. I stamped the word in place then mounted it onto black card then a card blank.
Here it is!
Have a good day whatever you are doing.
