About 6 months ago I decided I just had to have a Gelliplate, but when I got it, for some reason I was a bit intimidated and couldn't take that first step. However, when I saw that my bloggy friend Darnell from djkardkreations was having a very special celebration, I decided that this was the impetus I needed to break out the paints and go for it! Can you believe it? Darnell is celebrating 500 followers of her blog. Actually, it doesn't surprise me, Darnell is such a funny, kind and entertaining person and a fabulous artist as well! It was Darnell who invented the clever acronym - NBUS - and if you're a card maker you know what that means! So that is what Darnell has challenged us to do - break out something we have in our stash that has never before been used.
I really enjoyed making this. It's so much fun to just experiment with no pressure and expectations. To begin with I used stencils and made a few prints - you can see some examples below in the photo of the tags. Then I decided I might try a mask instead and this card is the result.As it happens, the moons have aligned and Simon Says Monday challenge is to use paint, so my card fits their challenge too!
There is only one problem and that is the terrible mess I have made in the process!
|This is just part of it! I think I will have to work out a system!|
