Gelli Print Think and Wonder Card
Over on the Happy Daze blog I have made a card using a Gelli print background and Artistic Outpost stamps from Think and Wonder, Flower Market, and Whimsical Melange.
This was my first time with the Gelli plate, in fact I booked the Andy Skinner class not even quite sure what one was. He was a great tutor and I was pleased to come away with plenty of background pages to use on projects in the current months, although many of the ones I made were no good at all! I tended to like the secondary impressions best which seemed to have almost a canvas texture look to them. This is the one I have used with the background stamping added but before I added the collaged pieces:-
I enjoyed the messyness of this technique. Wouldn't it be a fun thing to do in the garden in the summer with children and friends?
To finish the card, I stamped the butterflies on a couple of other pieces of Gelli background, one in lilac and one in turquoise and cut them out, and stamped the house frame from the Whimsical Melange set onto the tutquoise piece, to frame the little girl.
I am entering this into the June Referral Programme for the Artistic Outpost. You can buy their stamps from them if you are in the US, and from Happy Daze if you are in the UK.
