When you play with the Gelli plate, you end up with quite a number of wonderful backgrounds, I usually set aside an afternoon and just print off sheet after sheet of different substrates to use at my leisure. Below is one such print, as you can see I have used some embossing paste randomly to add more texture.
Here is the card that was made from this piece of paper.
I have used the JOFY 24 set of stamps to make the flower.
I then worked on my substrate with a few glazes to bring out more contrast and depth.
Top right you will observe some gold flakes.
The centre of the flower is a collection of glass beads.
I am only posting once a month these days as I am a little busy, but I thought you may like to see what I made this week.
I spent a day in the garage making up Backgrounds with the Gelli plate including stencils, and I liked this Bg so much it inspired me to make this card.
I also made the Tyvek Bg behind the chipboard butterfly.
The text stamping was added then I stitched in the left hand corner.
The element and main focal point has a Bg of painted Tyvek, I have combined layers of different media, added the glass seed beads, stitching and then cut the butterfly out of the Background paper, but this time I included foil sweet papers.
I would like to enter my card into these Challenges: Frilly and Funkie- Layer It Up. (Shabby Chic/Vintage)
