Bloggers Challenge - Monoprint Background

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the United States Armed Forces Challenge.  The challenge this week is to Make your own Background.

I created a monoprint background using the Gelli Arts Plate and Just a Trace Stencils along with paints from DecoArts and stamps from Prima, Ranger (Dylusions Line) and Unity.

To create the background panel, I applied DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Flamingo, Coastal Waters and Orange Sherbet to my Gelli Arts Plate, then added the Dottie and Jacks Stencils from Just a Trace and some Punchanella to the plate, and made a print onto Mixed Media Paper.

The "little girl' stamp from Prima's Julie Nutting line is stamped in black on My Minds Eye pattern paper and paper pieced with Authentique pattern paper. The sentiment is stamped on scraps of the monoprint background and adhere to the background panel using DecoArt Decou-Page.  I used a STAEDTLER Fineliner to draw around both stamped panels for added depth.  The stitching (Unity stamp) was added in Black Archival to finish the edge of the card.

Other - My Minds Eye pattern paper, Authentique pattern paper, Gelli Arts Plate, Brayer, Just a Trace Dottie and Jacks Stencils, Punchanella, STAEDTLER Fineliner, DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint (Flamingo/Coastal Waters/Orange Sherbet)/Deco-Page, Ink Blending Tool
