I created the handmade background using Distress Oxide inks through a stencil and repeated the Summer colors with papers and Distress inks. The penguin was colored with Copic markers and popped up to add dimension. The sentiment stamp and the penguin are from the same set from The Cat’s Pajamas–I always like the sentiments! I am pleased to participate in the 2017 Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop. Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made #93 – Sleeping Kitty

FMS-93-sleepingcat-gelli-bkgrnd

  • Stamp – Magenta “Sleeping Cat”
  • Background – made with Gelli Plate – Gelli Arts – layers of acrylic paint with impressions from: Stencil Girl “Damask Waves 6” and Crafter’s Workshop “Basketweave” template
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Embossing folder – Cuttlebug “Swiss Dots”
  • Ribbon – May Arts
  • Ink – Ranger Distress Ink: Seedless Preserves
  • Acrylic Paints and Ranger Distress Paint (Brushed Pewter)

I made this card using a background/monoprint I created with my Gelli Plate. This particular background consists of three separate runs to get the layers of color I wanted. Each print run used a different color(s) of paint and different imagery. I used Freshly Made Sketches Sketch #93 as inspiration for the layout of this card. Because I’ve been demonstrating mono-printing with the Gelli Plate at a local art and craft studio, I have lots of backgrounds to work with! You may see more soon. I blended some Distress Ink onto the cat image to avoid the stark white paper I had stamped it on. It worked better visually with the background that way. Thanks for visiting.
