I have a drawer full of acrylic paint and 2 Gelli plates- one card sized and one larger. I don't use it too often, and it is not too difficult to take it out and play with it. So, when I saw the rubber band challenge at SCS in the Ways to Use it challenge, I took it out. Marilyn, one of the sample makers for the challenge, used a Gelli plate and a brayer with rubber bands on it for her sample, so I was inspired!
I used fall colors on this one- reds, orange, yellows and this is how it turned out. I trimmed it down and chose this fall leaf stamp by Unity Stamps. I embossed the image using black fine detail embossing powder. I colored in the image with Distress Ink markers. There is a touch of shimmer in one of the paints I used, so there is a nice sheen on the background.
This is another Gelli print, more orange than reddish. I thought this fun ghost mice image from Great Impressions would be fun on the background. A strip of Washi across the bottom, some sequins and a little stitch border by Hero Arts finishes the card.
Hope you had a great weekend!!!
