Devil in the Details

This started out innocent enough. I wanted to create a print from a stencil. After trial and error, mostly error, I got this bg. Recipe: Bayer stencil with dark brown dye ink from pad, press stencil into gel plate. This can be used for a pull but this step took the perfect amount of ink off stencil. Spray stencil with light mist of water and press stencil into white copy paper. The stencil is all about gears that you can barely see but it was exactly what I was trying to get, clean image with the dark brown ink separated into reds and soft brown . I added brown stencil butter through word and dots stencils to piece then stamped in brown ink a quote. Brown splotches are where the ink bled through when I was using the back of this piece to mop up the work surface, before I knew I would actually use it. Die cut border in red cs and added squares on point on opposite side. Deckle frame and white die cuts were in stash. Sentiment is printed on sticker paper that is mounted on brown cs then popped up with foam tape. Base is white cs that has pp for mat layer. Before adding sentiment strip or mounting to base, I splattered with white ink and outlined some water splotches with black gel pen. Grounded bird and red diamonds with black water color pencil then used waterbrush to feather color out. Because the greenery is only attached under the bird I could shape the pieces after they were attached.

This is the pull I took from the gel plate. It was dry embossed with the gear stencil then the surface swiped with the brown ink pad pad. I also added some stencil butter and stamped words. This will go in the pp box for some project in the future.

    1. Thanks Gerry, this sounds much more complicated than it was. I am a little stuck inside. Weather is breaking this week so maybe I won’t spend quite so many hours in the craft room.


  1. I love that you have an extra piece to use later. For mostly being “error”, it turned out beautifully. I love seeing your multi-media creations and hearing how you did them.
