Stampotique Design Challenge- Gesso

I applied a layer of gesso onto a piece of chipboard, and varied the thickness

Stamped Stampotique Daniels Hearts & Hanging Hearts, the textures were added with a palette knife and scrunched carrier bags

I made a large heart stencil and applied the Gesso and distressed the edges with the palette knife, this needed to dry overnight as it was about 2mm depth

Once dry I stencilled CWS tile texture onto the hearts and stencilled the diamonds using Prima Finnabair Checker stencil

I coloured using a variety of Dylusion & Mister Hueys sprays

Then stamped the hearts with clear embossing and used Stampendous Aged Silver embossing powder and highlighted with DecoArt Silver metallic Lustre and Treasure Gold Aquamarine


  1. Jools this is fabulous, soooooo much texture. I love the colours and that touch of blue is a show stopper
