Dancing on gel prints

I have a couple more cards incorporating gel prints today. This first one is made with a clean up sheet; maybe you can recognise the criss cross of brayer marks on the paper. When I stamped the PB ‘butterfly garden’ stamp over the background it was a bit too delicate to show up well. Highlighting petals and wings with a white gel pen worked to keep the design subtle but still noticeable.

I cut the gel print to fill the card front and added a sentiment from the Paper Rose Studio ‘so extra’ sentiment strips.

The gel print below has a delicate blue pattern over bronze made when the paint separates on the gel plate before you get a chance to take a print. I used a bronze print to pull the blue paint which had separated evenly over the whole plate. You can’t tell from the photo but the bronze has a metallic sheen to it.

I cut flowers from navy cardstock using the Penny Black ‘shall we dance’ die to complete a card I can use for any occasion.

The Penny Black sale continues at The Foiled Fox so if you have a wish list, take a look.

    Such pretty and inspiring ways to use those gel ‘scraps’! Thanks for sharing…I want to go pull things out and play…☺

  4. I love both these, great colours made better in real life by the shine I am sure. The use of white on the first card was a brilliant idea, love it xx

    I love seeing your use of your gelli prints. How creative this is. The white highlights are perfect on the first card and love the faint blue on the second one. I really need to pull my plate out again after seeing these. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Amazing what unique and probably unpredictable colors and design appears from geli plate. We all thoroughly enjoy how you are so creative in your stamping from journals to cards.
    Love it all. Plus, you sure get our creative juices flowing.

    That white gel pen! WOW! Your “clean up sheets” are sure pretty and remind us to stay open to the possibilities.

    These gel print roll off scrap works brilliantly Heather and I love the added white gel pen to emphasise the flowers and butterflies on the first, and a great textural surface on the second in that wonderful bronze, and such pretty black die cut flowers on top. x
