Artist Trading Cards part two

I should be calling this my ‘opposite project’! I rarely work in layers and I hardly ever use stencils and I almost always add some collage.

For these cards I have used multiple layers, added no collage and I love it!

I took the cards off the cutting mat and mixed them up and stuck them back to make a gelli print using white gesso and a leafy plant. I must confess that this was a stage where I could have hated it once I peeled off the gel plate, but I didn’t.

Once the paint was dry, I grabbed an Inktense pencil and loosely traced the botanical shape then gave it a spray of water.

At last it was time to separate the cards and see them individually to decide what was next.

I grabbed my waterproof black ink and a vintage nib pen and added some simple plant shapes, gave the whole lot a splatter of gold and called them done.

I am pleased I gave layering a try and I am even happier that I like the outcome!

Happy Friday x
