Welcome back to the Scrap Matrix challenge where this month
the theme is "How sweet it is"
You might be inspired by the colours, or the photos on the Gelati bright mood board; you might want to record a sweet moment; what ever floats you boat, but do let us know what inspired your project.
My plan was to create a background using my Gel Plate with
the lusciously creamy, Dylusions paints and some stencils.
I added small dabs of paint onto the Gel Plate.
Using a brayer, I spread them out, trying not to blend them too much.
Next, I added a stencil from my stash, then I placed a piece of white card stock on the top. Using my hand, I rubbed the card firmly, to ensure contact with the paint, before gently peeling it off to reveal the pattern it created.
Having allowed the paint to dry, I added some more Teal paint through a stencil, trying to pick up the colour of the bucket.
Now to colour the chipboard.
So I tried the Bubble Gum Pink.
Nup! Toooo pink. How about some over stamping? Don't think so!
What about some Gold Wax? Yuk! Going from bad to worse!
Why am I boring you with all my fails you might ask? Just to prove that the Blue Fern Chipboard is so sturdy it will stand up to anything and not distort or warp.
Then I remembered an embossing powder which might mute the colour and add some black and gold. It went seamlessly over all the layers and finally I had a look I was happy with. What do you think?
I stamped some triangles and a square on the first Gel Plate Pull, cut them out and tucked them under the photo for a bit of definition.
To finish off, I added a bit of stamping to echo the colour of the chipboard and scattered a few prills inside the hearts. The tiny flowers are from my stash.
This little boy loved watering the flowers every time he came with his twin to spend the day with us. I notice he just got his undies on; it must have been one of his "No, no, Granny, no shorts" days!
