Gelli Plate Technique 3, Project Reveal: Elizabeth

Join us over the next few weeks as we explore making colorful prints using a Gelli Arts Gelli Plate.  We've even slid our art tables side-by-side and took pictures for you each step along the way!  Not only that, the fun continues as we share our “reveal” posts showing how our individual prints were transformed into creative projects.

My final  tape print created "here" is receiving a quick dusting of Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls before being transformed into a card design.

Who would have thought that packaging tape could hold so many possibilities?!
Stamps (Warm Wishes) and dies (Fresh Breeze) from Penny Black combined with circles created from straws and dots added with a stylus produced highly unique and elaborate patterns on a Gelli Plate.

The tape was mounted to a piece of white cardstock for stability and then showcased under a vertical window.

A die cut ticket (Admit One) was used for a decorative tag.  After the sides were edged in Delicata Golden Glitz, the sentiment (Sentimental) was stamped in Smokey Grey VersaFine.  I picked a softer hue for stamping the sentiment so it would be lighter in color than the button and create more contrast.  Tip/Hint:  Ice fishing line is a great alternative for black heavyweight thread.

I liked the notches on the ticket die cut so much that I mimicked them on the top and bottom right-hand corners of the elevated window mat.

Jill's going to get "sticky" too.  Wait until you see her reveal!
