My very first print I made upon opening the box and with my Splash Inks was the one used for the Background on this card. It was done using the large bubble wrap that my Gelli Plate arrived from Altered Pages packaged in. So its very fitting that this is what project I am featuring over on the AP Blog today for my DT Post.
The butterfly was a fussy cut stamped image I had sitting on my desk from the last time I had played with some shaving foam and dye re-inkers. To this shape I added a smaller die/cut embossed butterfly, some gold foiling and Gold Metallic Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest. A little gold foiling was also added to the background. I stamped my sentiment on white cardstock and then took my watercolor pencils to shade this in to tone in with the background also. A tulle ribbon bow adds a little more interest and lift to the butterfly.
I can relate using your Gelli Plate to the quote by Forest Gump -'Life is like a box of Chocolates!' As you never know what you are going to get!
For more Gelli Print Inspiration you can also view the other Altered Pages Design Team members in action over on the Altered Pages Blog, where Becky has used it to cover her mailing boxes and Leslie has created her own Tape.
I played some more last night with mine, layering color upon color wanting some more manly looking and grungy looking prints, so I will share the end results/projects with you soon.
