Turtley Awesome!!!

Hi Everyone,

I have a quick post using the Turtley Awesome Bundle and the Gel Press with Acrylic paints.

I am having so much fun with the Gel Press and there are so many different techniques possible using this.  I did a basic brayering technique using Cool Pool, and Green Olive Acrylic Paint.  I also used the Bubble Bubble stencil and Cool Pool Splash.

                                              Turtley Awesome

These are the basic steps for this card.

I put the dots of paint are on the Gel Press, and then…..

Using the brayer, I smoothed out the dots so that the CS looked like this…

I sprayed our Cool Pool Splash on the above background using the Bubble Bubble Stencil.

This is what the background looked like when I removed the stencil.

Here are a few of the other backgrounds I made using the acrylic paints and stencils. 

In the end, I used the basic brayered background, with the Bubble Bubble Stencil, and stamped the images from the Turtley Awesome stamp set.  I colored the images using our re-inkers, Blue Lagoon, and Kiwi Slice, with our Fusion Blender. 

I finished the card using the Tag Time Punch, Natural Twine, Photo Pin Elements, and Sparkle Silk. ….and of course popped everything up.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I really like the way the card turned out.
