Think and Wonder

Wonder and Think.......

I'd love to tell you how to create the background, but I can't take credit for it.  Recently Gerrie sent me some scrap (2-1/2" x 11") pieces of paper she created using the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate, so I could see what they looked like.  OMW - I'm just lovin' this, doesn't it make fab artsy backgrounds!  The scraps weren't big enough to turn into a card, so I used bits and pieces for the background design, adding some stamped images from the Artistic Outpost Whimsical Melange set in Black Archival.  The house is also from this same set, again I pieced together the scraps, by taping the leftover panels together, then cut out the house and layered it on a black panel.  Still working with the scraps I stamped the sweet kids from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder plate in Black Archival, then cut them out and adhered them to the house.  They are actually pieced together on 3 different scraps of the Gelli Arts paper, but you can't really tell that from the photo.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost (Think and Wonder/Whimsical Melange)
Card Stock - Black, Blue, Watercolor
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Distress Ink Gathered Twigs
Other - Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate, Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber, Acrylic Paints
