The background of today’s card is another gel print featuring a gorgeous Lavinia stencil called ‘pods’. You can’t see in the photos but in real life there is some shimmer on the print as I used silver paint along with blue, green and white.
Over the print I added a green and a white wreath die cut from Penny Black. It is part of the new ‘soaring’ set which also includes four butterflies. The background called for dragonflies rather than butterflies so I die cut three from the ‘flutters’ set, an oldy but a goodie.
As I spent a chunk of time yesterday listening to Ann Voskamp’s book ‘One Thousand Gifts’, the joy sentiment seemed like a good match for the design.
I was watching a Julie Balzer book club discussion on youtube today as I worked and she mentioned how addictive gel printing is and how if you haven’t tried it you must (48 minute mark)! She called it the one tool that has changed her life! So I will again shamelessly plug my upcoming gel printing workshops and hope you will join me in this addiction!
I adore this print using the Lavinia stencil Heather and the layered white and green circular die and added dragonflies work brilliantly over the top and finished with a lovely sentiment too. x
This is an awesome gel plate background, Heather! Love the colors and the patterns of the pods! The white wreath and sweet dragonflies complete the card beautifully!
This is such a fabulous print with all the detail! You have achieved some incredible results with your gelli plate. I only wish your gelli plate class was on line. I’d love to be there! Beautiful card.
