Vintage backgrounds with the Gelli plate...


As much as I keep trying to move on from Gelli printing it just isn't happening. In fact I succumbed to investing in the 8 x 10 larger Gelli plate. That doesn't mean my smaller 6 x 6 is redundant. I think there are advantages to both.

Gelli 3a

Rather than using a stamp to create pattern this time I embossed some card with a flourish embossing folder and used that to press the pattern into the first layer of paint.

I found this slightly easier than using a stamp, and although I always immediately wash my stamp after using with acrylic paint, I always worry that I will end up ruining my stamps.

One of the advantages of the larger plate is that if you fold your Gelli print in half, the card is printed on the front and back.

I like that :)

Gelli 3c

The beautiful little frames are from Ebay, and the tassells are from my stash that I have had for many years from Paper Pallette by Provo Craft. I bought loads of different colours and don't use them often enough.

I will try and move on to something else I promise lol. 

See you soon x
