Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well.
I got together recently with a friend to 'play' with our Gelli plates creating mono prints. It's amazing how quickly you can create a pile of prints with Acrylic paints, stencils, self-made stamps and anything else that will make impressions.
I created two cards for Christmas using mono prints in the background. This first print doesn't have too much pattern which made it easier for over stamping. I used Design by Ryn's beautiful Seaweed Set to create the 'icy branches' and the large Merry Christmas is from Chocolate Baroque's fabulous Bold Christmas Words set.
I'm joining in at Crafts 4 Eternity's current challenge as the theme is Non Traditional Christmas design.
I started by stamping over the print several times with a seaweed branch using white pigment ink, which I embossed with clear. Then I embossed the branch a couple of times with pink glitter and then with a blue/purple glitter powder. Merry Christmas was stamped with dark blue and embossed with clear.

The background on the card below is much busier, but I decided to use it for a non-traditional Christmas design.
I stamped over the background with Ryn's spiral branch with Dark Cobalt Archival Ink. I coloured the leaves with a green Gelly Roll pen. I added glitter to the stars that were in the background.
