Gel Press was kind enough to send me a 5" x 7" plate and I am in love! There are so many options when using the plate.
While I often use paint with the Gel Press, this time I decided to use Susan K. Weckesser's Color Pop Pigment Inks from Clearsnap, stamping them directly on the plate.
Next, I used a brayer to blend the colors on the plate. I pulled one print at this point, but I wanted some more detailing.
I placed white cardstock on the plate and rubbed. I used the second print for the background of my card and used the first print for the JoyClair stamp set - Santa's Coming.
I used the positive image for my card's background and the negative for the sentiment. I stamped a sentiment from JoyClair's Hello Autumn stamp set on the negative portion, then die cut it for the center of the card. I think it looks wonderful!
And then I played around and pulled some additional prints using stencils and assorted paints for some future projects!
Please stop by the DCC blog to see projects from all the designers.
