monoprinting on Smoothfoam

I started by painting a base coat of color to the Smoothfoam sheet. I then spread a second glossy color on the Gel Press with a brayer and pressed the stencil on top. I pressed the Smoothfoam sheet on to the stencil/plate to make a monoprint.  I repeated the process with several colors and stencil designs to create a varied  background.

I stenciled some key shapes and wrote a sentiment on the surface with dimensional paint. I embellished my piece with some bling and a key on a chain.
