Guest Artist: Helen Gullett with Color Blending

We did a Call for Art for Color Blending. And we got a great submission by Helen Gullett! We love this card design!

Helen writes:

I had fun creating the background using VersaFine Clair ink pads: Blue Belle, Purple Delight, Tulip Red, Summertime, Green Oasis, and Nocturne (Black). I picked the ink up with a makeup sponge and started sponging it on white cardstock. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Light House Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad, and then I heat set the ink with craft heater. I colored the image with ShinHan Twin Touch Markers and Colorless Blender Marker. After that, I fussy cut the image, and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Blue Belle and trimmed it.

Today, I want to show you a quick and easy way of creating backgrounds for cards using Fireworks Sprays on the Gelli Plate. Combined with gesso these sprays can be turned into pastel shades with some fun patterns and textures. I create multiple prints using some for backgrounds and the rest to die-cut elements or stamp on.
