Playing Around


I made this card using Inky Impression's stamp Lili's secret. I decided to play with gesso and create my own background paper.

I printed an image from my computer and painted gesso over it. Then I rubbed oil pastels on my fingers and rubbed it over the gesso. Then I stamped the image with a versa marker pad and a black ink pad. When stamped on the paper, I added clear embossing powder and heated.

The image was colored in with Copic markers. The gesso made it much easier to blend the colors. The lace was also colored with Copic markers.

I hope you like this unique creation.
