MC Sept/13 - Gelli Leafing - Snowflake Ornaments

I've been playing with my Gelli plate for the past 2 days. Some friends asked to have a demo and play day using it. So I thought I'd get a tutorial put together with sample and colors used etc... Got some nice prints, so think I'll even bind it for future reference...

Anyway, one of the techniques is allowing the paint to dry on the Gelli plate, lifting it with cold laminating film or clear packing tape, then apply gold leaf and burnishing etc. That's what these ornaments are made with. BIG GRIN. Then I put it together as a card...

PS the snowflakes used in the ornaments are from Sizzix Tim's movers & shapers mini snowflakes dies.

You can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on card image. Enjoy. PS there is a link to the Gelli printing pages as well.

I'm using an Xmas quote stamp from Quietfire Design

These are beautiful. I like the effect. Your card gives me the impression they're hanging in a window with the starry night sky behind them. Pretty!

What an amazing card - those ornaments are so transluscent and 'glass-like' - I can't wait to read your tutorial Yogi. I also love that beautiful sentiment - I'll look at the falling snow from a new point of view when it comes. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
