I’d like to share with you today another card made from the scraps I collect that are the trimmed off pieces from previous backgrounds that I have made, I always make my backgrounds on A4 card and then generally cut down to 7” x 7” so I end up collecting quite a few off cuts. I also have some failed background stamping where the image hasn’t stamped properly but have some useable parts of it.
Here’s what I did:-
Gather up a collection of scrap gelli print backgrounds and using a square punch repeatedly punch squares until you have quite a collection (I have quite a box of random squares now). I have also punched out squares from badly stamped images ensuring I punch out the good parts.
Once you have a good variety start laying them out and form a pattern that you are happy with, if you are anything like me I end up moving them around for ages. When you are finally happy glue them onto a piece of card. If you need to, trim the edges to square off.
I then stencilled the image with embossing paste and when that was dry stencilled the word “Live”.
I then mounted onto a black 8” x 8” card blank.
What I used:-
Gelli print off cuts made using 8” x 10” Gelli Plate
Square Punch or Die
Donna Downey – Intention Stencil (Only used the word Live)
See you next Tuesday
