Gel Plate Background for a Wildflower Spray

For my second sample with Tina's Wildflower spray, I played with my large gel press plate to create a panel first.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Mask off a 2.5” aperture towards the bottom using mask blanks.
Add the 8 x 10 inch gel press printing plate to the mega mount. Blend Ocean Reef Artistry ink over it with a Speedball brayer. Lift some of the ink using the A5 Rusted Metal Mixed Impressions stamp and press the gel plate over the card.
Add further stamping directly onto the card in Tenacious Teal Artistry ink using the smallest stamp from the same set. Remove the masking.
Stamp Tina's Wildflower Spray towards the left hand side in Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat emboss with clear powder.
Add ‘With love & Best wishes’ using stamps from the entwined sentiments set in the same manner.
Add Ocean Reef Artistry ink to the flower heads using the solid stamps.
Lay the stencil over the top. Add Tenacious Teal through the apertures onto the flower heads using the smallest Rusted Metal Mixed Impressions stamp. Add Tenacious Teal ink to some of the leaves using a Pergamano blending pen and nib.
To finish, add the stencil card to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.

I really love that sample Sarah! It's got the balance of grunge and white space that really appeals to me!!
