Tutorial: Monoprinting with Deco Foil and Rebekah Meier Designs

Mixed Media has recaptured my heart this year, with stencils, illustration, medium and above all color! The freedom it gives me to create texture and colors gives me the greatest satisfaction. Today's tutorial and project was a true experience. I will be sharing with you how to monoprint a background with paint, Deco Foil and other textures.





I have a gelli plate that had not seen the light of day in ages and I decided to take it out to try out some monoprinting (which is a tremendously addictive process). The idea of monoprinting with foil had been wandering in my head for at least almost 2 years but of course monoprinting directly with Deco Foil or Deco Foil Mediums would most likely ruin the gelli plate... So I came up with a trick that allowed me to add that foil monoprinted look easily!

The backgrounds turned out so incredibly textured and colorful I had to finish them off as cards with one of my digital stamp sentiments from my shop (Always Remember stamp set). But that is all I'm going to say because it's time to head over to Therm O Web to view the details on this tutorial!

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Today I'm using stamps from -You are Loved-. I couldn't resist foiling this romantic rose on vellum. To give the card a soft contrast I used one of the new watercolor Deco Foil, that actually has different tones of lilac and purple allowing the image to really glow and stand out. I colored the back of the vellum with magenta using a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.

The sentiment was also foiled on whi…
