Classroom homework - leafy swirls

Wasn't the lesson just fab today? Enjoyed looking at all the homework that was sent in and also the amazing samples sent in by all the talented dt ladies.

Here are the ones I sent in:

I started by creating a 6x6 gelli print using red acrylic paint and leafy swirl stencil. I also used the dotty wave and a web stencil. i then stamped the small and large leafy swirls with black archival and clear embossed. Then I added birds from lesson 18 in certain areas again in black archival and clear embossed. Using barn door distress ink and small leafy swirl i stamped it randomly on background.
Next I stamped best wishes in black archival and clear embossed. i cut it out with a spellbinder label and matted it on another die cut in black. I attached it with foam pads for some dimension. I matted the print onto black and added some cosmic shimmer dimensional glue in berry red and black for some extra interest. It was then matted onto a white linen base card.
finished card is 8x8.

These are the other 2 tags i sent in. I started by stamping leafy swirls onto tags with versamark and clear embossing them. next i used distress inks to cover whole background. Usig same colours and leafy swirl stamps, i stamped randomly on background. i repeated this with the NDC stamp.Then i polished tag to remove any ink from clear embossing.
I finished tags off by adding some paper flowers and matching ribbon

Hope you like these. take care Theresa xx
