Hello, hello everyone…
I’m back again sharing not just one but three makes I made for the Visible Image DT!
I had a Gelli plate for my birthday last year but I’ve not really spent much time playing with it. After seeing some gorgeous makes on FB, I felt inspired to dig it out and see what I could come up with. Have you ever Gelli-plated?! Just gather your acrylics in your chosen colours and a multitude of mark making tools. In the past I’ve used bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard and anything I can get my hands on but for this make I used elements of the following stamp sets: Live in the Moment, Elemental, Scripted Streets and Mesh-ellaneous.
Once the prints have dried, you can select areas to use for making your cards. The first print, I cut an area 8×8″ and matted it onto black card stock.
After heat embossing the three butterfly silhouettes in black, I added a hint of sparkle using Ink Splats to add areas of silver and to highlight the main sentiment, which I embossed over the coffee stain stamp.
To add extra dimension to the project, I heat embossed the butterfly detail in copper onto Vellum, which is such a lovey, soft paper to use. Once fussy cut, I adhered them to their silhouette with their wings slightly aloft.
I almost prefer the ‘ghost’ print as I’m not good at putting white space into my makes.
The second card also used the background splatter from Somewhere in Time but this time has the fabulous eye from Where Dreams Take You .
I’m rather chuffed with these makes and I def want to explore what my Gelli Plate can do as the textures and layers you can create are very much my style. Why not hop on over to the Visible Image Blog page to see what everyone on the DT has been making lately!
That’s all from me… have a great week and I’ll see you soon.
