Playing with Gelatos, Gesso and Penny Black

I made this card a few weeks ago after being inspired by this great tutorial by Jill Foster.

To begin I used a crimper to add texture to the background and then painted it with gesso.
When the paint was dry, I stamped the  Penny Black irises using gelatos straight on to the stamp and spritzing with water. Next, I coloured the background with gelatos and my fingers to smooth it out.
Then i die-cut the butterflies with one of PBs new dies.


  1. What a wonderful effect, stamping over the crimped background!

  2. Fabulous colours Jenny - fantastic card :)
