I saw this idea on a Gelli Art video shared recently on their blog. I just had to make a few. I love gelli printing and figured it was worth the price to get a couple of small circle plates -- LOVE THEM and it was good retail therapy to boot! LOL
Paint (colors of your choice)
stencils and other texture supplies
Gelli plate (circle, small)
Oatmeal/kraft color cardstock - FSJ
Mixed Media Supplies mica
Create your prints using the gelli plate and paints. Set aside to dry. You can print directly onto your card front as shown in the video or stamp several onto a sheet and scan and then trace in eCal to cut.
Create the ornament top using the basic shapes library and cut on white cardstock. Color with the silver Sharpie. My marker wasn't as juicy as a new one, and I was able to get the ridge lines with ease. 😊
If you printed directly to your card front, glue on the ornament top and add the twine or ribbon to finish off. I used a stamp on the inside, but you could certainly print before you add your gelli print to the front of the stock.
Because I desired some cleaner edges on most of my prints (I got a little heavy handed with the paint on a few of the prints), I cut my prints and glued to the front of the cardstock bases. I added some mica to all the fronts for a little more bling even though it doesn't show up well in this image.
Thanks for stopping by as we close out 2018. I'm looking forward to more creative time in 2019! #eclipsecalmaker
