This is my card for the MIX59 challenge "Bag It!" - to Use a plastic food bag as your "printing plate" and create a background for your project.
Even though I own a Gelli plate, I used a plastic bag as shown in the (great) video. The wrinkles added some great texture!
I started with distress inks and printed, added some stamps which you can't see and printed, put down some sky blue paint and printed, painted Wild Honey Distress paint through a stencil and printed. After this dried I sanded it back some and painted black acrylic on the bag and put down some star die cuts and printed. Looked horrible, so I sanded it WAY back and applied a wash of gesso mixed with fired brick Distress paint, sanding it back a little after it dried.
I stamped and embossed the flowers, painted with watered down Distress paints and added googly eyes to the flower centers. The sentiment was a random thought, and I had these stickers that came in a paper pad, so that's what I used. I glued them on to be sure they stayed in place.
This was so much messy fun!
As always, thanks for looking!
