Gelli Plate Masterboard by Alison Hall


This week I have used the round 4" Gelli Plate and DecoArt Media acrylic paint to create a colourful masterboard.



Here's what I used... 

DecoArt Media Acrylic Paint - Primary Yellow, Cadmium Orange Hue, Primary Magenta, Cobalt Teal Hue, Green Gold
Ranger Archival Ink Pads - Aquamarine, Venetian Orange, Crimson
Stampendous Cling Rubber Stamp Sets - Marks, Wired
Acrylic Stamp Block - 6x6"
Bubble Wrap, Cotton Buds


Here's what I did... 

1. I was going to stamp with the Gelli Plate, so I removed all of the packaging, then placed the Gelli Plate onto the 6x6" stamp block. I started with the Primary Yellow paint, applied a small blob to the Gelli Plate, brayered it out, then used one of the Martha Stewart Combs to make a pattern in the paint. I then stamped the design onto the A4 white card.

2. I continued to stamp different colours of paint, having used various tools to make patterns in the paint (the circles & criss-crosses were made with a cotton bud), until my sheet of card looked like this...


3. Next, I used the orange, blue and green stamp pads to stamp images from the Stampendous Wired & Marks sets, and finished off by stamping the Kaisercraft Graffiti image all over in Crimson Archival. This last step brought the whole page together. 


I was thrilled with how this turned out...all that gorgeous colour made me so happy! :-)


I hope you'll have a go at making your own masterboard. They are great for cutting up and using in different projects. Next week, I'll show you some cards that I made with mine.


Have a creative day,
