Magpie Gelli Print

I've been a busy girl today. I took another set of Claritystamp samples to the Post Office, then I came back and made my Dad's birthday card. I rushed out to get it in the post only to find I'd missed today's collection. Never mind, it should still get there in time........

I thought I'd have a break and write this before I disappear upstairs to make Hubby's Valentine card. This month's Clarity NDC stamp has arrived at the perfect time.


Sometimes when I use my Gelli plate I'll take lots of prints before I achieve the look I'm after. This one was my first attempt. I loved the mixture of colour and pattern so stopped there.

It was built up in three layers. The first Pistachio one was done on a "dirty" Gelli plate that had a bit of colour and pattern on it already. This makes for a more interesting print. I then added the Sprig layer in Phthalo Turquoise and the Magpie layer in black. I added some Slow Drying Gel to the black layer to keep the paint wet and get as dark a colour as I could.

To finish it off I stamped the sentiment in black Archival. 

I guess I'd better get up to my craft room.
