PaperArtsy blog challenge #10 Bottles

Today I have a card to share with you which I am entering into PaperArtsy Challenge #10. The theme is Bottles. My card was inspired by Blossoming Bottles {by Pavla Hozíková} journal page. I have used Pavla's technique for the Gelli Plate printed background. I have also included bottles with Blooming flowers similar to the original journal page.

To make the card I started by printing the background using my Gelli Plate. I put Inky Pool and Beach Hut Fresco Finish paints onto my Gelli Plate and spread with a brayer. I used Watercolour paper to take a print.

I drew three bottle shapes onto white card and roughly cut around the edge. I scrunches up Waxed Kraft paper and attached it to the back of the bottles. Once dry I cut around the bottle shapes.

I added a little French Roast Fresco Finish paint to the edge of the bottles to add some shadow, as shown below.

I added some Snowflake Fresco Finish paint to the background before attaching to the card blank. Pavla did this on her original project and it helped the bottles and flowers stand out.

I stamped a selection of flowers, grasses and a sentiment in Archival Jet Black ink pad onto white card. I used Jofy Collections 14 and 24 stamp sets. I coloured the images with Copics.

I cut out the flowers and grasses and attached them, as well as the bottles to the card blank.

I added Glossy Accents to the centre of the flowers. Around the edge of the flowers I added Star Dust Stickles for a little sparkle. To finish I added a stamped sentiment and faux stitching.

Lovely. Great to see a card. I particularly love the texture you created on your bottles. They contrast beautifully with the blue background and pretty flowers. Lx
