Savvy Creations with Cassandra / Créations avisées avec Cassandra

Hello Magenta Friends! Cassandra here today sharing two cards made with distress ink stenciled gelli plate monoprints.

Both started out the same way. First, I went direct ink pad to 3x5" gelli plate with Twisted Citron Distress ink and then brayered it out. Next, I placed the Large Old Lace Stencil over top and pounced on Cracked Pistachio Distress ink in a non-uniform manner. Then, I removed the stencil and pulled the print. I repeated it a second time and there I had two background bases for my cards.

I used the flower stencil for with Silver Delicatata ink and a blending brush. It wasn't quite the effect I was going for so I added some matte gel paste through the stencil and added some Rock Candy Distress Glitter. While that was set aside to dry, I turned my attention back to the gell plate and lay out the flower masks from the stencil in a pleasing design. Next, I pounced and brayered Black Soot Distress ink onto the plate, removed the flowers and reapplying the remainder pulled print to the plate and pulled it again.

I already had the coffee filter silver glitter heat embossed stamped butterflies coloured with Nuance purples (MNU0016 & MNU003) leftover from a previous project and all I needed to do was fussy cut them out. I stamped the Happy Birthday and You are AWESOME sentiments with Black Soot Archival ink on white cardstock strips and then heat embossed them with clear emboss powder before using a blending brush to colour them with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink. I popped the strips up with cereal box board pieces before adhering them and gluing the butterflies by their centres and then using foam squares under the top part of their wings to add dimension to them. That finished off the Happy Birthday card and to finish the You are AWESOME card I added in some Gina K Disco BAll sequins. I mounted both on tent card fold card bases with two pieces of cereal board under to create that little bit of dimension.
