Dark Gelli Plate card

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and this week there are no rules at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! All the more reason to join in!


It was a while since I've used my Gelli Plate. I dusted it off ready to experiment. So far I only have printed on white paper, and I wanted to try something else. I really like the bright greens and blues and I think they very well with a black background. Reason enough to experiment.



The Gelli Plate always gives a different result. I actually had applied too much paint, but therefor I got this beautiful print. It's a second ghost image, which I pulled of the Gelli Plate with a layer of black paint. It's an easy way to clean the Gelli Plate (okay, to get it cleaner ...), and often it gives my a beautiful and interesting print.



The result is great, but how am I going to use this dark background? I wanted to make some more layers, and since it is a dark background, Simon Says Stamp White ink is the perfect idea.



As a focal point I had to use the man of the Purveyor stamp set. I stamped him on Kraft Cardstock and applied a thin layer of Multi Medium Matte. This way it's easier to give him some color. The colors stay more true.

  8. This is amazing Sandra!! I love that background. The white script was a perfect addition. And the wash tape is so great on it. It really focuses your attention on the stamped image. Awesome make -- Mary Elizabeth
