It's so wet outside... and on my card !


I always like the effect when working on kraft paper. It's so different from white paper. 
It's like a recipe -  a monoprint, kraft paper, and beautiful stamps.... and the only thing you have to do is mix it all together!  

LOVE these drops, and the flower? 
When I saw it the first time, I fell in love with it! 


Stamps are all from Designs by Ryn - 
thanks for letting me be guest designer again Ryn!
I enjoy it every time! 
More to come!

HIJ kent jou bij je naam....


I had this monoprint with a lot of color, and a lot of squares... and then what? 

When looking at it, I discovered there were patterns of flowers in it. So I decided to go for that. 
I outlined the flowers with a black Molotow acrylic marker. To highlight the flowers even more I decided to mute the colors in the background with watered down gesso. 

The words finish it off. 
De words are from the sheet 'Geloof, Hoop en Liefde' of Inkerbell Stamps. 




Ik had een monoprintje liggen met allemaal vlakjes, best mooi, maar ... wat dan? 

Mét dat ik ernaar keek, zag ik ineens vormen van bloemen, 
en besloot daarvoor te gaan. 
Met een acrylic marker (van Molotow) de bloemen gedefinieerd, en om de bloemen heen met een waterige gesso de achtergrond iets lichter gemaakt, zodat de bloemen er uit springen. 

Met een tekst erop vindt ik het weer helemaal af. 
De tekst is van de sheet 'Geloof, Hoop en Liefde' van Inkerbell Stamps.

Monoprinting is fun - 1

That's FUN ! 

Making monoprints with stencils ! 



 I've made two of them into a card, to show you how it can turn out, adding extra color with distress inks to fit a picture to go onto the card, and some stamping.
The script stamp is from Magenta.  

    

*****


 I've made a custom made gelatine plate, the size just a tiny bit smaller than a regular A6 card. 

Then I chose some stencils from my stash (TCW ones of course), and used the kitchen to PLAY!
The wall was a nice place to stick my stencils to, so I could just grab one, and after using it for several prints, I could easily put it in the sink with water in it.


***** 

I had FUN. 
These are some of the backgrounds I've made on kraft paper.



I will show you a few next time with my turn on the TCW blog, on regular white and creme paper.
