Birthday Wishes Gel Print Card

Supplies

  • Stencil – The Crafter’s Workshop TCW2300 Slimline Gentle Leaves
  • Stamp – Miss Ink Stamps – Everyday Sentiments
  • Posca pen – white
  • Acrylic paints, gel plate, archival ink
  • Sequins – Buttons Galore

I make lots and lots of gel prints! I like to participate in printing challenges, I teach gel printing classes and make many samples for classes, and I just love to grab a gel plate or two and experiment with inks, paint and textures. So each time I set out to make a few prints, it can end up to be many that I don’t have time to use at that very moment. So needless to say, I have a lot of potential card backgrounds available in my stash.

For this mixed media card, I grabbed a print that was already card base sized. It had interesting texture, but needed a focal point. I had this new stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop that I hadn’t used yet, so I didn’t hesitate to use it with some archival ink to add a design that worked very well with my gel print. I am always a fan of botanical designs. I wanted to make sure the stenciled design was clear on the print, so I added a bunch of dots with a white Posca paint pen. This added even more texture but added enough contrast that the leaves were better defined. Adding a stamped sentiment and some sequins made it an easy to complete the card.

Thanks for visiting.
