Today I am using my Gelli Arts Printing Plate again! This time I am stamping designs into the paint, using Lawn Fawn Stamps! Today I am using the 6″x6″ Gelli Plate since I decided to make postcards. I applied 2 colours of paint on to the gelli plate and used my brayer to smooth out the paint. I then took my stamps, and stamped into the paint to remove the paint to make a design. On the above samples I used the Chevron Backdrops and the Interlocking Backdrops stamp sets. I then stamped the Fanciful Frames using Archival Black Ink and the Happy Everything set for the greeting.
For these postcards I started out using the same technique. I used the Chevron Backdrops and Interlocking Backdrops once again. I tried doing 2 layers of printing on a couple of the cards. I then used Distress Inks to fill in the colour where the stamps removed the paint. I stamped on top of the cards using Belinda’s Borders and A Birdie Told Me. I used a variety of colours of Archival Inks. One thing I learned is I personally would use lighter colour paints so the stamping could show up a little better. I also added some glossy accents over the bird so it stands out a bit!
I love using the Gelli Arts Printing Plates! You can get so many unique designs, using different techniques! I also love using my stamps in different ways! Lawn Fawn Stamps has so many cute designs. I love taking their cute images and using them in an artsy way!!
