Squiggles and Rocky Block - Part 1

I certainly had a lot of fun making this card!

I know with Gelli prints you're sort of meant to go with the flow but I'm not very good at that. I usually have an idea of what I'd like to achieve and tend to keep printing until I get it!

I wanted to use the Squiggles and Rocky Block stencils together but I couldn't get a print I was totally happy with. So I kept on printing.

These are the rejects! 

I tried different colours, with and without an aperture, but I just wasn't sure about any of them.

I eventually ended up with a print I was happy with and the colour scheme led me to this western style card. Clarity have a fab "Follow Your Dreams" stamp that I thought would finish it off perfectly (the squiggly line reminds me of a path that has to be followed). 

Unfortunately I didn't have it, so I had to write it in by hand. 

I managed to rectify that at the NEC and used it to make a very similar card for my father-in-law's birthday.

Ooh I've waffled on today. I think I'll make this Part 1 and blog the other card made from this printing session next time.

    1. Thanks Linda. Do you mean the "paths" on the Gelli print? That is the Clarity Squiggles stencil. It follows the sections of the Rocky Block stencil. x

  2. Great backgrounds using the two new stencils, great cards for male themed cards xx
