Less waffle and on with the reason for this post ... a card! Take one gelli print and some inspiration from Jennifer McGuire and this is what you end up with:
This is more vibrant and has very little white space compared to most of the cards I create but I thought it was an interesting way to showcase one of the prints that I created. I think it is also the first time I have created a card with a moving sentiment! It also uses an idea from Jennifer McGuire on the Background Check course currently running on onlinecardclasses.com . Jennifer clear embossed a large floral background stamp onto some designer paper and the blended ink onto the background. I liked the idea and thought it might work well with one of my prints. I do not own any large background stamps so I used a floral mask instead. I also wanted to be sure that the black ink was solid so rather than blending it through the gaps I used a Pitt artist pen from Faber-Castell and coloured the spaces by hand! This is the print before it hit the guillotine, black marker and Big Shot!
I still need to practise with the gelli plate but have come to the conclusion that it is hard to predict what your print is going to look like!
