Another gesso

Sorry, not a very straight scan tonight! Another gesso off card, can't just do one! Here's what I used for this one:

Wishes page 12 - keyhole
autumn splendor stamp set D1181
express postage stamp set D1262
cocoa textured, ponderosa pine, goldrush and pansy purple paper
cocoa ink
goldrush ink
natural twill
clear embossing powder

Again, thanks for looking! Please feel free to leave a comment on what you think!


Thought I'd bring out the gesso again for this technique, and I really like the look of it! It's a big messy, but well worth it! This technique is called "gesso off" and you can find it at the Technique Junkies if you are a subscriber!

Here's what I used for this card:

Wishes page 81 - fancy file
petal, twilight, white, cocoa paper
twilight marker
timber brown stazon
cocoa ribbon
