Mono Printing - SDC#48 and a Giveaway!

I've often admired the fab backgrounds that Kate Crane incorporates into her artwork, and this weeks Stampotique Challenge was the perfect time to give it a go!  Inspired by this piece of Kate's, I set out to create my background using the Gelli Arts Plate,  Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint, some Punchanella and a Chicken Wire Stencil.


Because I wanted to add color to the stamped image (as shown above), I stamped and masked the image on watercolor paper, before I added the Mono Printing using the Gelli Arts Plate.  Here's a picture of how the project looked, once I removed my masked image and added the Mono Printing.
