Stay Brave by Alison Hall



 

 

I've been playing with the 3x5 inch Gelli Plate and Dina Wakley's stamps this week, and I have a simple one layer card to share with you.

 

Supplies...


Dina Wakley Media Stamp Sets - Silhouetted Women, Handwritten Quotes
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Brayer
Round Plastic Lid

 

Instructions...

 

1. Apply Beach Hut Fresco paint to the 3x5 inch Gelli Plate using a brayer, then stamp the card blank directly with the Gelli Plate. Clean the Gelli Plate with a baby wipe.
 
 
 
 


 

2. Apply Gilt Media Acrylic to the Gelli Plate, use one of the Martha Stewart Comb tools to add a pattern in the paint, then stamp directly over the first layer of paint on the card. Clean the Gelli Plate by taking another print onto a scrap of book paper.
 
 
 


 

3. Brayer the Gelli Plate with Beach Hut Fresco again, make a pattern in the paint by twisting the round plastic lid randomly, then stamp directly onto the card. Clean the Gelli Plate off on the book paper again.
 



 

 

4. Once the paint is fully dry, use Archival black ink to stamp the silhouetted woman and the words.

 

I hope I've inspired you,

 

Have a fun and creative week,
