Lovebirds Gelli Print Card

Morning, I hope you're all having a good week. I'm having one of those where I have so many things to do that I don't know which to do first! I'm writing this whilst eating my breakfast so that will be two of today's jobs out of the way!

I love the vibrant orange and green of lovebirds and used those for the colour scheme for this card.

The bright orange background is a Gelli print that I made using two stencils. One is the Clarity Leafy Swirl and the other is a heart one that I cut myself.

I used Doeflex and my Silhouette Cameo to create it. 

I applied paint to the Gelli Plate and placed the Leafy Swirl stencil on top. This was followed by my stencil and some copy paper to take off the excess paint. I then put a heart shaped mask in place before I took the print to leave me a clear aperture to stamp into.

I coloured in the lovebirds with ProMakers and created a little bit of scenery to set them off.

The green mat is white card coloured in with the same green ProMarkers that I used on the birds. It 's an easy way of making sure the colour matches.

I don't normally do anything to the insides of my samples but this had to be done! Everybody say "Aww!".

Stamps Used

I guess I'd better brave the elements (it's absolutely chucking it down!) and take Maya out for a walk before I crack on with the rest of my jobs.

I hope you have a lovely day.

  6. Lovely card Lynne. So cheerful. I haven't had much luck with my cameo and doeflex yet. The large shapes cut ok but the smaller ones don't seem to cut even after several re-cuts. Your hearts are lovely though and so I think I will have another bash. Thanks for the inspiration, as always x
