Deli-icious!

I had an ATC Swap this past weekend with the theme- use Deli paper.  I experimented a bit using the Gelli plate and Sweet Stamps images and Stencils.

And


And

  I made prints on cardstock and the Gelli Paper, and used the Delli paper as Faux Washi and as the die cut on the butterfly on the 1st two sets, and on the flower stems for the third set.

  I experimented on the 2nd set by adding white inks in various ways- one I added the ink directly thru the stencil, one I traced the stencil pattern in White ink pen and the third I added white paint with the tip of an eraser. I added the Tulip stencil 1st on the under layer.

 On the third set, I added shimmer with a Spica Pen- it is very hard to see in the picture, and dots with the White Paint Pen.

Supplies I used can be found on the Sweet Stamps Blog in my write up HERE

The challenge this week is Mother's Day- the link is HERE

Happy Mother's Day to all. I hope you all have a Blessed Weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful trio of gelli cards! Loved it that you used deli paper for that washi effect. Some beautiful backgrounds, and your white gel dots added a lot of detail too. As did the fluttering butterflies to create some colorful dimension. Each one is just wonderful. TFS & Hugs
