tape transfers using the gel plate and knew I needed to try that. Colours are layered onto the plate and each layer is left to dry, then stamps, stencils, acrylic paint pens etc. are used to add patterns.
I stuck mine onto music pages and book pages and was so pleased with how they turned out. I did find that iridescent paint was not the best for the layers as it took a while to dry and then came off the plate before I wanted it to. Also, I stamped one set in dye ink, which didn't work as well as stamping with acrylic paint.

Although the poppies and peonies in the garden are now just a memory, I did remember to take a few photos. I don't think they particularly enjoyed the rain we had in June, but I did manage to get some images before they were too battered. Above is a pink poppy which I can't remember the name of - I will check to see if I wrote it down.
I don't remember seeing the red blotches at the base of the petals on this white poppy (Checkers) before - I thought they were black.

I used a spiral stamp to create the backgrounds above and you can see the effect adding water had. I used watercolour card for that.
