Be your own kind of beautiful

Did you know that Visible Image have some fabulous background stamps to compliment their feature sets? In today’s post I wanted to celebrate these stamps and show what wonderful texture they can create.

Also I’ve long wanted to experiment with printing feathers using my gelli plate. So I thought that I would incorporate these too. Here’s the result:

To begin the project, like I seem to do most days I used a gelli print background from my stash as a starting base. This was created using Golden high flow acrylic paint.

I stencilled over it and built up the background gradually, using distress ink (including oxides) and the background stamps.

I then then flicked some blue, white and gold ink on top. When dry I added another layer of stamping.

Having printed my feathers I used the stamps to stamp on top of these.

I then used the feature set to stamp the butterflies on to scrap card. When cut out I added them along with the sentiment and hearts. I also did some doodling and added highlights with acrylic pens including gold pen. Finally for additional texture I cut up some floristry mesh,adhered gems to the butterflies and attached some black and blue bakers twine.

I think this is one of my favourites. I hope you like it too!
