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.
