Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a tree surrounded by mixed media.

The background is a gelli print from my stash with a torn book page in the corners glued down with matt medium. The colours were muted by using watered down gesso. I added some distress stamping in the background and then stamped the tree using Versafine Clair ink.  The flower and leaves were coloured using distress oxide inks and a small blending brush. When I finished the colouring I cleaned the stencil and put it back in place and spread glass bead medium over the image.


Here is a close up of the gell bead paste so you can see the sparkle.
I added a little ink with an alcohol pen where I stamped over the torn paper transitions as the stamp didn't give a clean image.

Oh my..Love all your mixed media elements and layering for your beautiful dimensional card design, Christine. TFS the close up of your gel beads and description of how you stenciled and watercolored your flower in the corner. Beautiful stamped tree over all your mixed media elements too. TFS my friend. Hugs...Nancy

So cool, Christine. It all starts with the fabulous gelli print background. LOVE your wind blown tree image ... it's really beautiful. The corner stenciling is so pretty and adds some lovely brightness to your card. The glass bead gel on top adds texture and sparkle. LOVE IT!
