Celebrate with Flowers


Today I have a card that was inspired by a recent class I took on Gelli Plates.  If you don't know what those are, you gotta look them up!  They are SO much fun!  

So onto this card.....I used the Stampendous stamp set called Pretty Poppies and the Ranger Letterit set called Birthday.

I used my Gelli Plate to create this background using acrylic paints and stencils.  I'm telling you its SO much fun!

The stencil I incorporated is from Tim Holtz called Honeycomb.  I heat embossed the greeting using WOW! Embossing Powder in gold and versamark ink.

When I stamped this flower image using Memento black ink onto watercolor paper, I had no idea what colors I wanted it to be.  I just mindlessly played with my Arteza Brush Pens until I came up with something I liked.

I didn't have a die to cut this flower out so I just fussy cut it.  I wanted some leaves to go with it so I used a vintage Sizzix Bigz die that I had.

I added the cool edge on my background with the Tim Holtz Deckle Edge rectangle dies.

A little copper mesh from Stampin' Up! and some pearly accents using my Ranger Liquid Pearls in Taffy finished off this fun card.

I hope you get a chance to watch the Gelli Plate video or perhaps are inspired to try a little Gelli printing on your own.  Once you get going, it's hard to stop but you end up with a gorgeous pile of unique papers just ready to create into something more!
