A little gelli

Good evening,

I'm back from the Claritystampers East workshop, which was at Bawburgh today.  We had a lovely time again and some fab cards were produced, but I will wait and show you after the Great Blakenham workshop next Sunday

We did use the gel press petite plates today, so I though I would show you a project from the last set of sample I made.  This was the first time I'd seen the petie gel press plates and they are such fun to use!  I think they are easier to start with than the larger plates.

This is quite a large size, a bit longer than  A4.  I used mixed media cardstock.  I added a light coating of colour to the card before I started, then I loaded the square plate with an orange and a red chalk acrylic paint(sorry, can't remember the exact colours!).  I brayered the paint on, put the leaf stencil on the card and squished the plate over the stencil.  Repeat for each leaf.

Once everything was dry, I used a grey pencil to add some shadow under the leaves and went round the edge of each square with a gold leaf pen.

I enjoyed doing this one!

Thanks for visiting, I hope you have a lovely weekend, The family is out celebrating my parents' 60th wedding anniversary tomorrow!  60 years!!  Quite a feat in this day and age!
