Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well. We enjoyed a great long weekend and also time in the gardens.
I'm in the craft room this evening for a change and thought I would show you a card that I created a using a Gelli plate print that had been sitting in my stash for a little while.
The smaller background is glossy paper with alcohol inks. I stamped the beautiful Song Thrush Silhouette by Chocolate Baroque with black archival ink. I created the flowers with Crealie dies (CLCS24, CLCF22 & Double Fun No 12). I coloured the flowers with Distress Inks before molding.
UPDATE: I received an email asking if the alcohol inks would hurt my Gelli plate.... I thought it would, but see information below from Win Din. However, I did not use Alcohol Inks on my Gelli plate. The larger background is a Gelli Plate Print created with Acrylic paints on the Gelli plate. The smaller background behind the bird is glossy paper with Alcohol Inks. Sorry about any confusion !
ADDITIONAL UPDATE (May 22): Win Din, talented mixed media artist, left me this information in a comment on this post: "I've been assured by the Gelli people that since
alcohol is a component of the Gelli plates, the inks will not harm them. They
may, however, stain them, but with prolonged use, so does acrylic paints to
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week,
