More Gesso Resist

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by.

I've been playing with gesso again.

I've put some of my thick gesso through a stencil and let it dry.  Then I ink
blended some Scattered Straw Distress ink over the design, wiping it off the gesso.
There's a bit of texture stamping in the top left corner under the die cut.

The die cut was cut twice and glued together then watercolored.
After the watercoloring was dry, I brushed a little Transfer Gel Duo 
over the top and let it dry.  I used some little bits of left over foil
to rub on the gel to give the flower some golden highlights.

My mixed media are Gesso Resist, Die Cutting, Watercoloring, Foiling
Stamping,  Heat Embossing, Dry Embossing and Splattering.

What a beauty Bonnie - love the touches of gold on the flower petals, and the gesso stenciled background is fabulous - subtle but definitely 'there'
Stay safe

Beautiful, Bonnie. Love the gold on the flower and how you did that. Very clever idea to just use bits and it gave such great results. Love this card.

Such a gorgeous tulip Bonnie, and I love the gesso resist using a stencil and the colour goes beautifully with the flower and love the foiling too. x

Your die cut is gorgeous, Bonnie and I just love that background. I'd have never thought to use gesso through a stencil and the results are terrific with a wonderful fade to the edges. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas.

This is so lovely, Bonnie! The subtle gesso stenciled background makes a perfect backdrop for the gorgeous poppy. The blended Scattered Straw almost looks like glow of the poppy. I love that you added a bit of foiling to the flower. The shine is so pretty!
