Gelli 2

This is the second card using one of the backgrounds made last week with the Gelli plate, using red, black and gold paint, matted onto black card. I couldn't decide what size card to use, so this is the 8" square version with a gilded dragon - the 6" square version will follow in due course..............
The dragon is an old Creative Expressions stamp bought many years ago after a workshop in Norwich with Jayne Nesterenko - as is often the case, it got used to death for a while then put in a drawer and forgotten until it was unearthed while searching for a different oriental stamp (that one is still hiding in the chaos). He was stamped on black card with versamark, covered with stamp'n'bond powder, heated, then gilded before matting onto gold mirri card and red card - the layers are on straight, though they don't look it on the scan.
Version 2 may be a while, as I have to at least excavate the bed from under the craft stuff - daughter does like to have a bed she can find when she visits!


  1. All the best with the excavation.......
    This chap looks excellent & quite at home on his background - that's quite spectacular with the gelli plate.
