Inks And Gesso!!!

Hi there and a belated Happy Easter to you all.
Had a busy old day on Saturday.........9 hours baking and preparing food.......I must be totally mad. My back and legs weren't fit to be used yesterday so I spent most of the day upstairs playing about with inks and gesso after seeing a fab technique in the latest Craft Stamper. I have enough gesso to bath in so it was great to see another way of using it.
The collage card was done on smooth card and worked a treat but the top card was done on textured and I don't think it came out quite as well. You can't see on the photograph but I added an all over layer of Patina Stickles to the turquoise background using my finger to smooth it out very thinly and it does look very pretty IRL.
There is another card done with this technique HERE
After tea I need to go and clear my mess up and pack a bag for work tomorrow then I need to bleach my hands which are mottled with purple, green and yellow!!!
Thanks for dropping by.

  2. Beautiful cards Sheila. I like the first one best but only because I adore that colour.

  3. Super cards Sheila, I love the gorgeous teal-y colour of the top one especially!

    Glad you managed to get a bit of a rest after your busy day of baking! Im sure everyone really appreciated your efforts though!
