I started off with adding some FSJ acrylic ink to my Gelli Plate. After rubbing it in a bit with my finger, I applied the watercolor paper to lift the ink off the Gelli Plate. After that, I added some additional ink to the plate and used a pin to scribble a few lines into the ink for texture and movement. Did you know that Fun Stampers Journey carries Acrylic paints? Oh yes, there are seven yummy colors to choose from right now. I hope the collection expands to more colors too. I selected Blue Lagoon and Butter Cream Ink for this background.Gold Embossing Powder onto the paper in some of the wet locations. I used my heat gun to set the gold embossing powder and set the panel aside to work on the stamped image.
Black Licorice ink then used FSJ reinkers: Butter Cream, Blue Lagoon, Sweet Pear and some Fusion Blender Solution to color my image. I also added a little bit of Prismacolor Pencil coloring to add extra detail. I highlighted some areas with a gray Copic Marker.
After completing the image I andded some gold ribbon and handcut fringe then used my sewing machine to stitch a black line. I set the background panel onto some Blue Lagoon cardstock, popped it up onto some Butter Cream cardstock (that I stamped Clear Pigment Ink, Gold Embossing Powder to emboss) and mounted the panel onto the cardstock. I selected an Oatmeal Cookie card base. With the leftover thread from the machine stitching, I applied it to the back of the dream catcher and popped that image onto the card. Adding some Sparkle Dust with Journey Glaze here and there added a bit of pop!
Thanks for popping in today. Hope you have a fabulous rest of the week! :)
