Hello and Happy Friday to you! We are very excited as it is release day for our NEW stamps! Woo! We are so pleased that they are already loved by so many. We have lots of amazing samples to share with you still, and are kicking off release day with a stunning piece of wall art by Lynda, featuring our gorgeous BUTTERFLY EFFECT stamps on a fabulous circle gelli print…
I have had such a lovely time playing with the brand new Summer release from Visible Image this month. They are such fantastic stamps, and a really great size for home decor pieces, so I decided to make some wall art using the Butterfly Effect set and my round Gelli plate for this weeks design team inspiration.
I am not overly well practiced in using the gel plate I must admit [it is definitely on my ‘must use more’ list!] so I was unsure how my print would turn out, but that is part of the fun of creating papers with it so I just had to make myself relax and go for it!
My first layer was created by applying paint through the ‘Butterfly Ink’ stencil.
I then took ‘Ripped Fishnet’ stencil and applied paint through that, framing the butterfly.
Once dry, I applied another layer of paint through the ‘Mesh It Up’ stencil.
Again, once dry I added another layer, this time with the ‘Time Tunnel’ stencil.
Then came the scary part- pulling the print [after adding a thin layer of fluid acrylic].
I was SO relieved that the finished print turned out well!
As you can see, the ‘Butterfly Effect’ large stamp fits the stencil perfectly.
I stamped the large and smaller butterflies in Stazon ink on an alcohol ink background and fussy cut once dry.
I wanted to stamp and emboss the background stamps inside the circle, so drew round my Gelli plate onto copy paper and cut to create a mask. I embossed in white to help make the image pop.
I inked a drop shadow around the central image to help add dimension, and mounted it with glue gel. I stuck the smaller butterflies around the edge of the circle, and added the sentiment before mounting onto black card and framing.
This is stunning! The gelli print worked out wonderfully, lots of fabulous texture and the white embossing looks fantastic against it. The butterflies look beautiful and this art work definitely needed to be framed! Thank you Lynda ♡
