Girl with Apple by Deborah



Owing to the serendipitous nature gelli printing all I can tell you is the name of the stencil and the paint colours I used. So hopefully it will inspire you to buy yourself a gelli plate (or crack open the one you've bought and haven't used yet) and get cracking.

If you buy yourself a pack of bog standard copy paper you can make tons of prints very cheaply. Just make sure not to put too much paint on the gelli plate (or brayer the excess onto another sheet of copy paper).

I made several prints using both stencils in the Apple Girl set and this was the best one. All it needed was trimming and mounting onto some red paper, which is actually the backing paper that comes in the Clarity stencil packaging (it just happened to match - serendipity again!).

I'm not sure whether I used Eco Green's Pistachio or PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chartreuse because I used both during the gelli printing session.

I finished the card by stamping 'wonderful' from the very wonderful - and endlessly useful - Ali Edwards Incredible stamp set in Red Geranium. Archival ink seems to work best on top of acrylic paint.


  1. love the effect you've created on this piece.

  2. Great effect, Annette x

  3. A very original and rather striking card Debs. Great colour too.

  4. Now I can see the girl with the apple! A great card.

  5. Amazing use of the stencil - and what rich, vivid colours. So cool to use the packaging too!
