The Gelli Girls


Clarity stamps:
Happiness is time spent

Clarity Tangle stencil

Gelli plate scraps

Distress inks:
Spun Sugar
Wild Honey
Tattered Rose
Scattered Straw

I stamped Lily and Annabel onto Theuva card using a Memento black ink pad and then stamped them again onto some paper I had from playing with the Gelli Plate and used this to paper piece the two figures (hence the Gelli Girls). I used alcohol markers to add some colour to the girls. 

I then stamped the words and used a Spellbinder die to cut the shapes out and used Spun Sugar Distress Ink to colour the edges before removing the die. 

For the background I took a sheet of centura pearl paper and the Clarity Tangle stencil and swirled a mixture of Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw) through the stencil.
