Addicted to Gelli - Part two

While I was making the backgrounds with the Gelli plate, I also had a go at using the Splodge Away masks with it - they gave brilliant results.

The paints were from the same Introduction set, this time using red, yellow and blue, rolled out with the brayer.

The message is from the lovely word set from Clarity - very useful because they are remountable, so you can make your own message

  • Place the splodge mask over the top, use some copy paper to rub over the mask, so that it picks up the paint and remove
  • Place the mask paint side down onto card and rub over with the same bit of copy paper to transfer the paint
  • Do another piece of card, but this time use the mask and bubble wrap to make patterns on the gelli plate and pick the paint up from the plate
  • Once the paint is dry, stamp and emboss with white powder the Happy birthday message
  • Cut out the message and mat onto red and blue card
  • Cut out the base square and mat onto red and blue card, then the base card.
  • Embellish with a beautiful butterfly die cut from Spellbinders Dlites range
  • and some white gems
Hope you like it
