Gel Plate and Dreamweaver Stencils

Hello, again!

Today's adventure is using a Gelli Plate.  This is the homemade version, so I guess I really can't call it a Gelli Plate, so I'll refer to it as my HM gel plate.  It works well, by the way.  

Today, I've combined it with my new Dreamweaver Stencil, hexagon.  Fabulous stencil.  I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of this one.  My HM gel plate is close to a standard card size, so these will be used in future cards.

For this design, I placed the hexagon stencil on top of blue paint.  I then added some yellow and green paint.  I really don't plan things very well, so it's always nice when a print turns out to be one I like!

The second one I'm going to show you uses the stencil that was painted upon.   I just flipped it on a print I had already made.  I like the grunginess of it all.
Here's a close-up.
The bottom layers used a rubber stamp and acrylic paint.

Until another day...

Miss You

Operation Write Home is always looking for some "Miss You" cards, so I thought I'd make a few.  Here are today's cards:


This one uses a digital stamp (please send me your information if it's your design) and watercolor pencils.

Here I've used the Cricut Paper Lace cartridge and the DCWW Citrus stack mat.  Isn't it colorful?

Until another day...

Better Late than Never

I missed last weekend's Virtual Card Making Party over at Operation Write Home, but I did get a couple of cards done, anyway.

Both cards use backgrounds that I made with my JellyPlate (my home made version of a Gelli) and a bicycle cut from a Cricut cartridge.  

If you haven't checked out Operation Write Home yet, go to their website to see how you can help.

Until another day...
