Card Using Rollagraph Serendipity Background

Rollagraph Background Card

This card uses a portion of one of the backgrounds I made for my 6/25/13 blog post on Rollagraph Serendipity backgrounds. The Local Produce stamp is from Impression Obsession. (I stamped it on watercolor paper in black Ranger Archival ink and then colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.) The branches image used for the background is one of Clearsnap’s Rollagraph wheels.

Rollagraph Background

This 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of scrap paper was apparently something I put underneath another panel that I was applying ink to — probably spraying it with ink. Rolling the Rollagraph image over it helps to pull the paper design together a bit.

Rollagraph Background Choosing Spot

The uneven nature of it meant that I needed to choose my spot for the card carefully. I decided to place my stamped panel in the open space in the middle . . .

Rollagraph Background Cropped

. . . and then cropped it to size. I’ll use the slices from the top and bottom for some other project.

  1. Seeing a demo lately of gelli plates, rollargraphs were used and I hadn’t thought of using them in years! Thanks for another background idea!
