Ahhhh that sunday feeling......

Hi my lovely blogging friends I hope that you are all having a lovely Sunday doing whatever you are doing. I have to say that I am doing a lot of nothing, I'm taking today to do a little battery recharging after what has been an incredibly busy week for me at work. No battery recharge would be complete without a little crafty time and I have been playing with some previously made gelli prints, I am trying to complete some of the half finished projects that are strategically dotted around my craftroom waiting for some final inspiration to finish them off needless to say inspiration isn't that forthcoming today........ so this might be the only thing I finish!!

The background was created using my gelli plate using
Crafters workshop Cubist stencil & Dylusions Flossie stencil
I just wanted a simple colour scheme so have used Daler Rowney Fluorescent pink and black acrylic paint. I then outlined Flossie with a black sharpie pen.
I stenciled the star using Sweet Poppy Glossy white paste through Tim Holtz Stars layering stencil
the sentiment is from another one of the Kaisercraft sets this time from "Way of Life Set" which I have stamped 3 times with versamark and embossed with Black matt wow embossing powder as I really wanted it to stand out. Numbers are Tims remnant rubs and for a final touch some of Tims mirrored stars (photo doesn't do these justice) 
All has then been mat and layered onto black and pink card.
 I am entering this card into the current challenge over at 
Where the current challenge is to use a mask or stencil and include some stamping, my stamping is my triple stamped sentiment.
Thanks for popping by and see you soon

  2. Yummy bubblegum pink tones beautifully with the greys and black shades. Have yet to use my gelli plate but if my backgrounds turn out half as good as this then I will be one happy bunnykins.
