Calming Ripples

Gill has made this amazing mixed media card with the seahorse stamp and sentiment from our CREATE YOUR CALM set with our RIPPLES stencil for texture.

[tutorial] Gill stamped the seahorse and sentiment onto a yellow, blue + green gel print background, embossed them in black powder and fussy cut. To create her background panel, Gill used ‘twisted citron’, ‘broken china’ + fossilized amber’ Distress Oxide inks on her gel plate, spritzed lightly with water and took her print on a 5″x5″ piece of smooth mixed media card. Pebeo modelling paste was then applied through the RIPPLES stencil and removed carefully. The oxide inks mix wonderfully with the paste, allowing the colours to blend into the texture. Once dry, Gill stamped the circle elements in ‘midnight’ ink randomly over the background. The panel was then mounted onto black card, then a 7″x7″ card blank. Some co-ordinating colours of Angelina fibres were then placed in the centre of card, and the seahorse and sentiment were adhered on top using 3d glue gel, creating gorgeous texture and dimension.
