Kate Crane Facebook Live - Gell Plate Printing with alcohol inks - FREE TO WATCH

We were thrilled to have Kate Crane of Carabelle Studio join us on the Stampers Grove Facebook Page on 20 February 2021 for a live printing session with Carabelle Studio products, Gel Press, and some gloriously messy Ranger alcohol inks. The live demo has already happened so you can watch whenever you like on rewind. 

From Kate Crane's Blog -The Kathryn Wheel

"I am happily married with two teenage children, and we all live in a rural village in the north of England, UK, with various small animals.  I am also a crafts tutor teaching in the UK and other parts of Europe, and love to share my passion for all things arty with others.  I have contributed regularly to various magazine in the UK and USA, and have been on several design teams. I currently design rubber stamps, art printing plates, and stencils for Carabelle Studio. I am  a helping artist for DecoArt, and also contributing artist for Gel Press and produce FREE instructional videos every month.  I have had my art published in several publications including Somerset Art Journaling, Stampers Sampler, Artful Blogging, Somerset Studio, Somerset Apprentice, and Art Specially for You (NL). "

In this live Kate will show you how to combine alcohol inks with Carabelle Studio Art Printing plates and stencils, to create distressed but really colourful, vibrant prints.
