Good Morning everyone
For Christmas i was given a Gelli plate which hadn't really been on my to try list but ive been having a little play with it and acrylic paints - still alot of practising to do but ive made a few prints that ive used on these cards, after making the cards i thought i should have taken a photo of the prints first so ive taken photos of the rest of them - see end of post.
5x7" card. I made this one for my sis in law who's had to have an operation. This print was neon acrylics in pink and orange, a die cut leaf, punchinella and a stamp. I stamped over the top with this lovely woodware stamp in black, die cut to size with a stitched rectangle die & then die cut a stitched rectangle from the middle at an angle, mounted onto black card, adding the middle panel with foam tape - just to add more interest to the design.
For the background i used a swirl embossing folder, the little coloured strips were off cuts and not wanting to waste them i added them behind my topper panel. Stamped sentiment to finish..
Version 2 - this print was green pearl paint with a touch of yellow paint and a clarity stamp stencil for just a basic print. The flower heads i stamped onto a scrap of orange paper and paper pieced.
Version 3 i used one stencil and turned it 3 times with a different colour - pink, orange, yellow neon and green pearl acrylic paints
Version 4 another woodware stamp, print used neon orange, yellow and pink paint. 5x7 white card, i stamped the greeting direct onto the base, matted the topper onto black card and then the base card.
Woodware stamps wild meadow, lino cut teasels
Double stitched rectangle dies
A4 Swirl embossing folder
Id love to enter the first card into the following:
and onto some of my other prints - some im happy with, others will be a base to work on or cut into, im beginning to get a feel for it and not to add too much paint and Ive found the quality of paint makes a big difference. Lots more practice to be had......
