Autumn Leaves Gelli Print Card

I didn't know that Father Christmas read my blog, but after my last post I had a phone call asking me if I'd like some Distress Markers for Christmas. Apparently he was a bit busy so his got some of his little helpers, who sounded remarkably like Mum and Dad, to do it for him. Wasn't that nice?

I enjoyed using kraft card again when I made this month's card for the Clarity Stamp Challenge blog and thought it would also be great for this one.

I started off by creating the Gelli print. I used the 7x7 mask on my 8x10 Gelli plate so that I got the print of the stencil border too (I rather like this effect). I masked off the sky area so that I only got the Dotty Wave print on the land.

I placed the stencil back on top of the print and added colour (Adirondack ink) to the sky and land with a sponge and Ink Duster.

I created a few more Gelli prints in red, orange and yellow with the Dotty Wave stencil for the leaves and cut them out. I then had great fun screwing them all up and sticking them on with Pinflair glue gel.

The edges have been distressed by carefully running my decoupage snips along them. I finished them off with some Distress Ink.
