Birthday Celebration Wall Hanging

CELEBRATION Wall Hanging ( gesso, rubber stamps, paint, ink)


I chose to make this wall hanging and ceramic plaque instead of a card.  I would have used the same techniques on a card anyways! lol.

I started with an 11x14, 140 lb piece of watercolour paper and stamped over the entire surface with  ColorBox™ Background Basics Stamps (Diamonds1 and Picnic1) using ColorBox™ Crafter's ink   in Sea Breeze and Blueberry.  You need to heat set the inks .  
Once dry, I covered most of the surface, using a putty knife, with a thin layer of gesso.
I then wrote words into the wet gesso: 'CELEBRATE', 'Happy birthday to you,..' etc. I used the tip of the knife to write but you can use any sharp object.

Using the ColorBox™ Background Basics by Ann Butler ( Checks1), I stamped into the wet gesso. Let everything dry before proceeding.

Once dry, I used Earth Safe Finishes Iridescents  (rose), and the Blueberry, Ocean Breeze and Limelight inks to highlight the raised surfaces of the dried gesso.  Let everything dry.

I attached the pink DCWV Self-adhesive Frame Border and then adhered the ceramic medallion (that I previously made) to the centre. And voila!
