Hello, crafty friends. This evening, I’m bringing you some examples of what you could do with the latest release from Paperartsy and Tracy Scott. As you would expect, Tracy’s new stamps and stencils will transform any project into something extra special.
I used this stencil on a gel plate and then doodled on it with a white gel pen. So relaxing. Then I cut it into four squares and repositioned it onto a mat or two.
PS087 & ETS14
More monoprinting with a gel plate, then I stamped the gorgeous scribbly flower and stem on top. I highlighted the stencil parts that were in the centre of the flower with a white gel pen and darkened the shadows with some Gelatos.
PS087, PS088 & PS089
Here, I began with a brayered background, then stencilled over the top with a dark blue paint. I used the outer part of PS087 to line the edges with white paint sponged through. Then out with the white gel pen and a black fineliner to polish things off. This time, I added some Zentangles for a different effect. These stencils are so versatile. This will make a perfect journal cover.
How about some more gel printing?
After brayering teal and acid green onto the gel plate, I used the stamps to transfer colour from one half to the other. These are totally tropical flowers and worked beautifully for this method.
On a separate sheet of Smoothy card, I stamped this lovely image and painted her with the same colour scheme as the rest of the projects. Then I fussy-cut the image and stuck her down. This way, I could choose which part of the background made her pop.
I also painted and cut the headdress a second time with a view to popping it up on the girl's head for some more dimension. However, it reminded me of a bird of paradise, so with a little addition for the head, nicked from ETS19, I turned it into just that.
Once you start, you can't stop. That's the Tracy Scott effect....
Selection of cards
Quickly skimming over the rest of the projects, (otherwise we'll be here all night!) my favourites turned out the be the inchies. I finished them off with about three coats of Glossy Accents and left the bubbles in because I liked them.
I hope I've inspired you to try Tracy's new releases for yourselves. The possibilities are endless. I'll be using them for a very long time to come.
