Denise Lush shows you how to use the Gel Plate as a quick way to color in Dylusions Couture Stamps. After all, life is too short to wear boring clothes.

 

Instructions 

 

Life is too short to not have fun and one of the ways I enjoy myself is through art. Watch as I have fun incorporating gel printing with Dyan’s new Couture stamps to make fabulous outfits!

Step 1: Grab your 9” X 11” gel plate from the Gel Plate 3 Pack Assortment by Dyan Reaveley and Dina Wakley, your brayer and some paints. When choosing colors think of how you would like your outfits to look. Keep your gel prints really simple. They may not look like much but once you use Dyan’s stamps on them, it will look stunning!

Step 2: Stamp some outfits from the Dylusions stamp sets Night at the Opera Duo and Man About Town Duo onto your gel printed papers and once onto white paper.  Don’t forget to include some accessories!  

Cut out all your stamped images.  

Note, you can stamp the outfit more than once onto different colored gel prints, then cut and paper piece them together to create cute outfits!

Step 3: Find a regular mixed media cardstock page in your ClassicsJournal. Place the Diamond mask from the Dylusions Classics Stencils & Mask set. Adhere some temporary adhesive to the back of the diamond and put it in place.

Final Thoughts: 
I love using gel prints for the outfits. It’s so much quicker than coloring in the images! Little effort and great impact!
