Moira's on Sunday trying out her new Gelli plate - made some lovely backgrounds, and some very yuk ones too.
This card is the only completed result so far - background used blue, green and white paint, spread out with a brayer which was then bounced across the plate to give some texture. The sea bubble stamp by Ryn was stamped after the card was dry using a blue Adirondack ink- sorry, can't remember which one, I did wish it had been a bit darker though! Boat stamp from Stampin up, stamped in black versafine onto pool party card, cut out with Sizzix framelits die. Sail and clouds highlighted with bleach, sea with watercolour pencils and white gel pen. Mat cut from blue card using die to draw round (I seem to have mislaid the next size up die).
Once I find my ancient clear oriental stamps I will finish the card using the red/black/gold paint print - there are also inked stamens waiting to become butterfly antenna when dry.........(life is too short to cut round antennas)
It was a very interesting afternoon, but I don't think I will buy a Gelli plate just yet - they're great fun to use, but I could see me having a huge pile of backgrounds and nothing else............................but that sea bubble stamp is a totally different matter, as is the raindrops one I borrowed.............
