MC Feb/14 - Gelli Plate - Follow Your Dreams
But I am using the gelli plate BIG GRIN.
OK I used my small gelli plate and brayered Memento dye inks "Dandelion" all over, then brayered "Teal Zeal" on the right side working towards the center to blend the two colors, but still leaving some pure yellow. Then did the same with "Lilac Posies" on the left side.
Die cut a Spellbinders "Classic Hearts" (medium size) and placed it on the right side of my gelli plate - remember everything will be reversed to what you're seeing. Pressed my card front over the gelli plate and massaged with my fingers to make good contact with all the colors. Lifted my card and voila... I love the softness of the colors.
I then stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) using Versafine "Black Onyx". Then stamped the butterfly (Stampendous "Jumbo Butterfly Trio") with the black. Used a Wink of Stella iridescent brush pen to put some glitz to the wings.
To finish it off I used a Dylusions "Inbetweenies" stitching stamp around the edges using a piece of post it note as a mask.
