No More Adventures by Deborah

Maroon and rusty coloured card from my stash


I started with two gelli prints from my stash. For the background I used Rebekah Meier's Mini Love Post stencil but you could use any stencil that gives you texture and interest when mono printed.

I  trimmed it to size then stamped the Carabelle stamps randomly in red , grey and neon blue. Then I stamped one of Dina's Gals onto the Mod gelli print in black archival, cutting out to include a body. The washi and words were stamped on the lighter part of the gelli print.

Once I had glued everything in place, I roughly outlined the figure with the fude ball and white pens, adding colour with the Portfolio pastels (face, hair, smudging with my finger)and the Poppy Promarker. Actually, you can barely see the blue stars (from the edge of the Oiseau stamp) but they still add depth and texture. 

I used the fude ball to add my own Dina-inspired scribbly writing round the figure and to edge the background with a deliberately (honest) wobbly line. To finish, I mounted the piece onto maroon card then onto a rust coloured card from my stash but this would have worked as a journal page too.
