I used another piece of card from my gelli session. I used a stencil and relief paste to create my sun/flower thingy!! I then coloured the dried paste (drys white) using felt pens. I started off using yellows, orange and then added the darker red and rubbed in the ink in to the paste using my finger. I gave it a quick spray of fixative to set it.
I used a normal childs stencil for the lettering. I outlined it in pencil and then painted over it using black craft paint and added the white high lights. I stamped the post mark in the corner using black staz-on.
I used scrim tape as a mask and sponged some black DI onto the red base card. I gave it a quick spray of fixitive to fix the ink.
I just mat and layered it all up.
