Pick of the Bunch (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I hope that you are enjoying the projects that my Team Mates are sharing with you this month. I have some projects to show you using the new Floral Notes stamp set, and hope that these will brighten your November day.

For my first project, I have creatd a quick gelli plate background, using a brayer and Distress Inks, to cover the gelli plate, then pressed a piece of bubble wrap onto the plate to create an overall pattern. I removed the bubble wrap and then laid the card onto the gelli plate, smoothing it evenly, to ensure that I had a good coverage of ink across the card.

I stamped the flower image and sentiment onto the card, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and then coloured the image using pencils. I added a strip of toning ribbon to the background, and adhered the background to a white card blank.
For my second project, I used some left over fabric from some journal pages that I had made. The fabric had been coloured with water-based ink. I stamped the image and sentiment onto the fabric using Jet Black Archival Ink. I frayed the edges of the fabric and used some iron on interfacing to attach the fabric to a cheap little notebook. I added some lace, toning ribbon and a little wooden button.
This was a very cheap project to make, but will make a great little stocking filler present for someone. I know that I love notebooks, and have a large collection of them, and I'm sure that you know of plenty of people who might like something like this as a Christmas present.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  5. These are both fabulous Judith. The card looks great with the bubble wrap impression using the gelli plate with the pretty flowers, and the fabric design on the notebook is an inspired idea. x
