British Bulldog - Crafty Individuals

I am just so enthralled with the gelli prints and new Alice Palace stamps from CI. This card takes another Alice Palace image called British Bulldog and like the previous one I have made the card, journal style (well that's what I call it lol) and added some stamping and masking over the mono print.


A crown and some wings for the bulldog add to the texture and dimension as does the stamped and cut out bunting.


After I had stamped with some bubble wrap I added extra white paint, white pen and black pen doodling round the circles. Again the old credit card came out to paint straight lines in places.


The double layered mono print is very rich in colour and depth, but the additional stamping and masking created different effects yet again.


Here you can see where I have added treasure gold to the metal crown, the image and wings.

Hope you are having a crafty week.

Brenda, you are becoming a wiz with these gelli plates! That background is so to my liking and yes, it is journal style - but better! You know I love that British Bulldog and that sentiment is so characteristic of dogs! Love this! Hugs!
