Creating Backgrounds with Gel Press

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today working with a bunch of products from the Rubber Buggy Store.  Have you checked out the store lately?  It has so many wonderful new products.


Have you tried monoprinting yet?  If not, you are in for a surprise.  It's so much fun to create your own backgrounds using the Gel Press and assorted acrylic paints from Prima Marketing. The Gel Press comes in assorted sizes so you have lots of possibilities.


 
Once I placed paint on the Gel Press, I used a Gel Press Brayer to smooth the paint on the plate.




Next, I placed a Tim Holtz Stencil on top of the plate and placed a sheet of paper on top and pulled a print.  This process is addicting so I continued pulling prints using a variety of stencils from Prima Marketing and The Crafter's Workshop until I had no paint left on the plate.  You can continue adding stencil upon stencil to get some fun effects.
 

 
Once I had the backgrounds ready, I created cards and added stamped images/sentiments from Heartfelt Creations Coffee Talk stamp set.



I hope I've inspired you to give this technique a try.

Thank you for visiting.
