Believe In You By Dot

Hello everyone,
welcome to a fun tutorial using some of the new stamps
that Rubber Dance have released this year.

Isn't she a beautiful stamp?
It is from the set called Believe In You.
Here is a step x step tutorial for you so see how this was made.

She was stamped onto some tissue paper then turned over and
white paint was added to the image.

Some colours, from our Mood Board this month, were added
to a gelli plate.
Using a brayer spread the paint thinly over the plate.
If it is too much paint you can roll the excess onto some
scrap paper or directly into your art journal.

One of my favourite stencils was placed onto the gelli plate.
The brayer still had the paint on it from when the paint
had been spread over the gelli plate.

Without adding any more paint, simply roll over the gelli plate
with a brayer.

After lifting the stencil off, place white card
onto your gelli plate. Rub over it well, either with your hands
or a brayer. Then lift the card off.

This is the finished background.

The Inky Flowers stamp set is stunning!
The movement in the flowers is amazing and I thought
it would look great in and around the female image.

The colouring of the flowers was so simple.
I brayered yellow, orange and red paint thinly onto
photo copy paper, stamped the flowers and cut them out.
The flowers had also been stamped onto white card and cut out.
 The coloured cut-outs were adhered to the white flower images with glue.
Essentially paper piecing.

The gelli print was trimmed down and mounted onto white card.
The stamped pieces were layered onto the background.

The use of white can never be under estimated.
I decided to leave the leaves white and was really happy
with the effect. Even when the leaves go out onto the
white areas of the background, the white-on-white looks good.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the process.
