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.
