Playing with Gelato and More Stenciling Art

The twelve butterflies are the leftovers from my previous butterfly canvas artwork! Instead of keeping the canvas plain white, I decided to practice the Gelato Drip Technique! Hmm, it worked out quite well!

I thought I could enter this project to Simon Says Stamp’s Current Challenge-Paste. I used stencils to make these 12 butterflies, and some of them used Embossing Paste and Gesso. They definitely all look textured! The following are some close-ups of them!

I think now I am addicted to not only stencil art but also Gelato!

這12隻蝴蝶是上一份蝴蝶帆布作品剩下的,這次Helen不想讓背景一片純白,想玩一玩現在很夯的流水技法(Drip Technique)。只要是水性顏料都可以玩這種技法,而這次Helen使用的是Gelato。要讓顏料順利往下流,訣竅是必須在卡紙或畫布上先塗上一層Gesso,等Gesso乾了後,才能塗上水彩或Gelato,然後噴水,就能順利產出如流水般的背景了!


More Stenciling Art – 繼續玩型版技法

I have been addicted to Stenciling Art since last year and have been unable to stop!

I have recently utilized twelve stenciling techniques and come up with this butterfly canvas artwork! Oh, I really love it!

I also managed to make twelve tags which correspond to the twelve butterflies so that I will not forget how I made each butterfly!

Color-Splashed Birthday Card

This card was inspired by Kristina Werner in Day 2 of the Stenciled class. For me, it is a twist of Emboss Resist! How easy and fun!

I will also enter this card to Hero Arts' new challenge – Birthday Challenge (the category of Rainbow of color birthday cards or party decor) and Simon Says Stamp’s ANYTHING GOES WITH TWINE OR STRING Challenge!

Card Details

The stencil is by Stampers Anonymous, Tim Holtz Collection and the text stamp is by Hero Arts.



I am still catching up with the homework of the Stenciled class. I realize there is no way to finish and practice all the techniques covered, as the class will finish tomorrow. I therefore combined three techniques in one card!

The first butterfly used Embossing Powder over Embossing Paste. The second butterfly applied Double Stenciling technique. The third butterfly applied Translucent Paste over Distress Inks. The subtle misting background was done using Marker Spritzer which is an extremely old toy!

今天沒安排任何活動,除了睡飽、並和兩個寶貝Face Time聊天外,就是要玩印章和顏料來犒賞自己!這張卡的三隻蝴蝶分別用三個技法完成,真過癮、也挺有成就感的!


1.蝴蝶形狀出自自製型版,由Memory Box刀模壓出。

2.印章和文字刀模出自Simon Says Stamp。





Many Blessings
