Live and Create by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with some of my favourite house stamps.

What to do:

Use the 6x6 Gelli plate to randomly brayer on some DecoArt paints, then pull the print using a good quality white paper, set aside to dry. Trim to fit 6x6 card stock.

When I looked at the print afterwards, I thought it looked like shadowy house shapes in the background so that’s when I reached for the Rubber Dance house set as I thought it would go perfectly with it!

Stamp them with black Archival ink and colour them slightly with an orange shade of Distress marker. Stamp the little stars that come with the textured Flower set, in grey Archival ink. The tree branches are my own which were stamped in black Archival.

Mount onto black card and then white cardstock, adding a Tim Holtz sentiment as a finishing touch.

There you have an atmospheric card made with a completely random Gelli print ;) 

Supplies Used:

Rubber Dance Stamp Sets – Textured House, 1st Row and Textured Flowers
Hope you like it
