Flowery Leaf Gelli Print Card

There's not too long to wait now until the weekend (2nd and 3rd Nov) when Barbara Gray will be back on Create & Craft TV. Before that, on the 1st Nov, there will be a new challenge on the Claritystamp Challenge Blog so don't forget to enter this month's if you haven't done so yet. There's a £50 Claritystamp voucher for the winner.

Meanwhile, this is another of my samples from this month. 

I love the bright pink colour of the Daler Rowney System 3 Process Magenta paint and I thought it would make a fab background. I also thought that it would be fun to have a print covered in leaves so I had to make some more leaf masks for the Gelli print. I used my Silhouette Cameo for this but you could also do it by tracing around the stencil and cutting them out with scissors. It would just take a lot longer.

Wrong way                     Right way

If you look closely at the stamp in the stencil you will see that there is a right way and a wrong way up for the leaf. This means that you need to be careful that you position all of the leaf masks the correct way up on the Gelli Plate before you take a print. Guess who didn't do this the first time?!!!!

As the print is the reverse of what you see on the plate, the leaves need to be this way up. Then when you take the print you will end up with leaves that the stamp fits perfectly in.

Making it was really simple once I'd sussed out those bits. I applied paint to the Gelli Plate, put the leaves on top followed by the Leafy Swirl and Dotty Wave stencils. I pressed them down with some copy paper before removing the stencils and taking the print.

I stamped the Large Flowery Leaves in place, coloured them in with ProMarkers and outlined them with a black Zig Millennium pen.
