At the weekend I needed a last minute birthday card, for a young lady turning 16... so I got out my gelli plate. I pulled a couple of prints using Fresco paints, stencils, bubble wrap, lids etc. I pulled the prints onto heavyweight smoothy card.
So from the piece that I liked, I was able to cut these two pieces. You will note I left a clear patch inside each piece.
Here is a close up of the texture
I decided to go with this tall piece, it was the right size to make a DL sized card.
I started to draw a dreary girl inside the white patch.
I started to colour her with French Roast, London night, Blush, Sky and Snowflake.
I added in some Orchid and Little black Dress.
Then some Beach Hut and Bora Bora.
The background is done with sequin waste.
Here she is all done..
I stamped happy birthday onto another scrap of gelli printed card, and backed that onto heavy smoothy, then fed them both through a black buckle. I know it looks back to front but it was too much black with the buckle the other way.
Here is the card all put together and glued to a card blank.
