Background for Daffodils

The Paper Players: Tic-Tac-Toe
Sweet Stampin: Make Your Background

For this bg I put the yellow colorburst with some water straight on the glass mat. Let that dry then dropped some blue color burst with spritz of water and let that dry. Then dropped clear gesso and used brayer to smooch the liquid over the colors. Put a white piece of copy paper over all and lifted. Once dry, I dry brushed silver acrylic paint one direction and white gesso the other. Used a selectively masked daffodil bg stamp that did not want to stamp very well so filled in some missing lines with black gel pen. Added some leftover hand made daffodils then mat & layered on gray then white cs base. Stamped sentiment in black and added hand tied ribbon bow.

I love the clean white of the daffodils against the green that the blue with yellow created.

  1. I too love, love this for the same reasons as your friend LisaBabitz. It is really great and I like how you used the gel pad idea but did it on your glass mat instead. At least that is what I think you did.

  3. Wow! I love your gorgeous background. Did the clear gesso on your glass mat give you any clean up problems? Your 3D flowers are wonderful and stand out so beautifully against your background.
