Wings of nature monoprints

Hi! guys, I’m back today with another set of monoprints.  I am super excited to share these prints with you!  I used the mono prints as backgrounds for butterflies and dragonflies!  Such fun. I made these prints at the same time as the ones I shared earler this week. Actually, I used the same stamps for the printing process, Butterfly Basics.  Then, I added some extras to the prints.

Butterfly Basics Stamp Set

This set is one of my all time favorites! As I mentioned, Sunday it was time to give it some love!!

  • Each print has its own unique feel.  Yet all three work so well together.
  • The guilding and stamping on top of the prints give them an extra special feel

These prints were made very similarly to the original monoprints, used a Gelli Plate to create the prints.

  • The paper is mixed media paper and is taped with painters tape to create a border
  • The colors used are Pool Party, Crushed Curry, and Dapper Denim
  • The process is a layering of Gelli prints to create a depth of color and texture.
  • The Dragonfly is stamped in Dapper Denim. This is from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set

  • This print is accented with stamping and guilding.  After the print was completed, I added additional stamping to add even more texture.
  • Even more texture was added with glue and guilding. (mixed metal leafing)
  • The butterfly was guilded. I love using the multipurpose adhesive sheets for this process.  It makes leafing so easy with die cuts
  • The colors are Dapper Denim, Pool Party, and Crushed Curry

  • This print is just two colors, Dapper Denim and Pool Party
  • There are a few leaves peeping through from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set.
  • The small dragonflies are from the Touches of Texture stamp set.  They are stamped in Dapper Denim
  • Little secret, I originally was not going to use this print. It was a slight bit crucked. Then I thought. Add some guilding.  So, I did…this led to the two prints above. Witch I love!
  • The two large dragonflies add a little extra special feel, especially with all the guilding in the background

If you would like to know more about the actual printing process check out this post!  It explains the steps of the printing process. I didn’t want to repeat what I had just told you on Sunday! But, I sure did want you to see these beautiful prints.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge #tttc03

The Tic Tac Toe Challenge is an all new stamping challenge based upon the tic tac toe board.  I chose to make a card that was blue, one layer, and yellow. Now those of you who know me, know that one layer is super hard for me!!!  But, I really wanted to use blue and yellow…

The new build a bike stamp set is amazing!!! I just love all the pieces you put together to make your very own bike. There is even a little puppy to ride on the back or in a basket.

I used my favorite Stampin’ Up! yellow Daffodil Delight and paired it with Dapper Denim. This color combination is just so happy!!!

  • Now you see, I did it!! One layer and cute as can be! It helps to have an awesome stamp set
  • The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous
  • The balloons are apart of the Glamper Camper stamp set.
  • The two-step stamping gives you so many different color combinations
