Hexagons & Buds

Good morning all, 
I hope you are keeping well. 
We have woken up to a very foggy day here in Cheshire. 
What is the weather like for you today ? 
It is quite cold too, 
We definitely needed lots of layers when walking Eric first thing. 

Today I have another recent sample for you. 

This uses a fabulous new Aall & Create stencil .
#128-Hexagons & Buds by Bipasha Bk

I started by using the stencil on my gel press, I had to remember to place it upside down, so that the numbers will be the 
correct way on my final print. 
I used Colorbox ink as it has a good pigment to water ratio, great for the gel press. 

I just love the way the print has turned out...

Next I blended some ink around the edges, and added some water splatters, 
You know I just love the way this frames the design. 

I wanted to keep the print quite simple as I didn’t want to loose my stencil piece so that it just became almost 
Invisible in the background. 
So I needed a focal point, but not one that would take away the beauty of the background.

So added a little more stamping in black and some carrots , plus a little pen doodling. 

I just added a little colour to the carrots and decoupaged their bodies. 
Oh that sounds painful,,,lol.

I also decoupaged the number section, another recent obsession of mine. 

Some white posca splats to add the finishing detail. 

Here is a closer look 

I think this would make a great card for a gardener , male or female. 
Maybe include a packet of seeds too. 

Thanks for joining me again, 
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day. 

Much love and hugs

  1. Ooooh, I just love that ghostly imprint of the stencil Jo, what a great technique. Love the pop of colour with the carrots. A gorgeous sample my friend. Hugs, Anne xx

  2. I’m loving this gel + stencil technique, I need to get some practice with the water splashing. The finished piece is gorgeous, those carrots look good enough to eat 😊
