Flower Stems

Today I am showcasing a card I created as one of my demo pieces from a few shows I have attended around the country, using my A5 Stamp "Hope" #200, from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
My Gel Press is getting a lot of use just lately and I have to say I am really enjoying the process of just creating backgrounds and I am loving some of the results.

This background was created with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints in Sour Grapes, Lake Winaka and Sugar Plum and I have to say I adore these colours together.
I love the fact that the Fresco Finish Paints dry a little quicker on the Gel Press so give me some white open areas in my design which I find really pleasing to the eye.
Torn Parchment has been included to house my sentiment and to add a touch more texture. I have also added a touch of stamping to the bottom of my card using the little daisy stamp from my other A5 Stamp Set "Eclectic Stems" #199.
I applied the Fresco Finish Paints to my Gel press then went back and added touches of the Lake Winaka to the Gel Press and lightly touched my card onto the Gel Press to achieve just a light touch of the colour.
I also used the Lotza Dotz stencil to give a further layer of interest in my background. Laying the stencil onto the painted backdrop on my Gel Press.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
