gelli plate fun


Hello. Well as promised earlier in the week I am back to share my first attempts with my Gelli Plate. I have to say, it is as much fun as everyone says. I bought a box of acrylic paints so that I would have lots of colours but the tubes are really quite small. And that's the only thing - it does use more paint than I thought it would! But then think of the money I will save not buying patterned papers - hmmm, we'll see!

So, as well as the background on the card above I made these - 

They look a bit samey but that's only because I need more stencils!

My card also features 'Elvis the Hedgehog' new in at The DigiStamp Boutique. I coloured Elvis with copics, cut him out and popped him up on 3D foam pads. Who says 'arty' backgrounds and digistamps don't work together.

Wow Liz these backgrounds are gorgeous!

I am like Debs above, telling myself I don't need new equipment and I don't need a Gelli Plate, but you have made me lust after one now
