Butterfly and Blooms

Hello Everyone,
I am still working with my Gelli prints I made a few weeks back. 
Mixed media is always a go to for me when I make cards, and this week is no exception.

The three substrates plus the Heart is all from gelli printed paper.
I enhanced these backgrounds with stamps and stitching, plus Tar gel medium on the Heart.
Adding the lace and gauze for a tactile effect.
The three circle blooms are embossing paste.
And to complete adding 3 weeny buttons.

Entering into these Challenges this month.

Hope you are having a great week.

Mixed media and the Gelli plate

Hello Everyone.
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 made a strip using organza in similar colours.

Inspiration was this post by Sue Carrington, the magenta on her flowers popped for me.
