When I first pulled this Gelli print I didn't like it and was going to bin it. It was only when I was sorting through my many Gelli prints today I came across this one again and suddenly fell in love with it. I just had to create a card with it and share it with you.
I love the grungey look and the gold pattern created with a floral embossed piece of card pressed into the paint. I used the fab Decoart Media metallic gold fluid acrylic, my personal fave gold paint.
I recently bought some laser cut chipboard and have used a decorative oval chipboard by Anenome to put behind my flower. I didn't ink or paint it as I actually love the rustic look against the distress background.
I think the moral of the story for me is don't throw any Gelli prints away, not even the ones that I think have gone horribly wrong! In fact I am learning with mixed media not to throw anything away as it is a great way of recycling all sorts of things that may otherwise end up in the bin.
Thank you for stopping by, see you again soon x
