I signed up to make a Gelli plate card, seeing as i had not yet taken out my plate this was going to be exciting!
Started off with Fresco Paints Lake Wanaka, Eggplant and Bora Bora. Splodged them onto plate and then brayered the colours over. Added some shapes and die cuts, the above image shows the first print.
The card above was the second print off the plate.
Above image was the third print off the plate, i added some water to remove the last of the paints.
Ran the A4 print through an A4 embossing folder from Diesire called Paisley, rubbed gently over the top of the design to remove some of the paint.
Cut up the Gelli print so could get two panels to fit both the back and the front of the card. Went round the edges with a gold Posca Pen and mounted onto Kraft card, did the same again. Adhered to the card then added some Treasure Gold to the frame and the panel.
The frames are beautiful and ornate, can see them being cut out to use on other projects but i am struggling to make this into a card by adding an inner and verse. Need to play more with the folder and see if i can get over the initial why did i bother feeling…
Sending my swap and hoping that the lady who receives it, Adrienne, can use it as a card or something other.
Thanks for dropping by, looking forward to your comments.
