Here's another challenge card I made this past weekend:
This is my take on the current sketch at Your Next Stamp:
which I rotated:
I had part of a panel left from a Gelli print which I used as the main panel on my card. I just added the horizontal card stock strips which were cut from remnants on my desk. One of these days I'll find the bottom of that remnant pile!
For the sentiment, I used the Happy Birthday from my Mama Elephant Make A Wish set. It's perfect for this kind of sketch.
I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment since I wanted to use my Archival black ink, and my ink pad is in dire need of re-inking. Sadly, I don't have (or can't find) my re-inker, so until a new one arrives, I get to stamp and stamp and stamp again until I get good coverage. I think I did five or six impressions. Then I had to let it dry.
Once the ink dried, I finished assembling the layers.
I love how easy these Gelli prints are to use as backgrounds. I haven't made any new ones since my initial effort, but as soon as the pile thins, I'm all over that. I even have some new Martha shimmer paints to try.
Thanks for stopping by!
