Gelli Plate Play

 Hi and welcome to my blog. Recently I have been playing with my gelli plate and making fun backgrounds using lots of stencils and acrylic paints. I used two stencils on this background - diamonds and circles. The saying is a sticker and the stamp is unknown. 



Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Handmade Background #19

 Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the colors and scents of Fall. I only wish Fall would last a lot longer! 


My focal point on this card today started out as a background. The technique I used was soot stamping. This technique is fun and easy to do, but be careful not to burn yourself or the card stock! Take glossy card stock and sponge some colors over it. Turn the glossy side to the flame of a candle and slowly wave it over the flame, turning the card stock around to get the whole surface covered with soot. You might want to use tweezers or a clothespin to hold the card as you do this. After the card is covered with black soot, then stamp a stamp onto the soot and some of the soot will come off to reveal the image. You will have to set the finished card with spray sealer so that the rest of the soot does not rub off. I just use hairspray! It smells better too!

I cut out a portion of the background using a stitched rectangle die to use as the focal point of my card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Handmade Background #18

Hi! Welcome to my blog. Here is another one of my backgrounds that I found in my stash.


Stamps:  Unknown
Sprays:  Ranger

I wrapped a long piece of twine around the card stock and used various colors of ink sprays over the card stock and then unwrapped the string. Simple, but a neat look! 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
