Gelli Plate Kingfisher (posted by Claire)

Good morning folks, Claire here with a fun card made using the very handsome Kingfisher from Kingfisher Song. I love these stamps and had lots of fun making scenic cards but I couldn't resist giving him a crown for this card lol.


I took a pile of gelli plate backgrounds and chose one for Mr Kingfisher, I also stamped him on another background and added some colour with sparkle pens. I stamped the branch on the gelli plate background and doodles a border with a black gel pen. I cut the kingfisher out and layered him up on 3d foam pads and then matted and layered with white and black card. I took an 8x8 card black and some sequin waste and added some stencilling to the base card using coordinating distress inks. 

I added the sentiment and a few black sequins and as a finishing touch I give him a chipboard crown that was embossed with black embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

  5. A fabulous card using this beautiful Kingfisher Claire and the gelli plate background looks fantastic and I love the way the background card has the stencilling using the sequin waste echoing that on the gelli background. x
