Backgrounds with Gel Press

Hi everyone, it's a beautiful day and I'd love to share some cards I created with the Gel Press.

Have you tried using the Gel Press Monoprinting plates?  Gel Press plates come in a variety of sizes and you have the ability to create amazing designs.

Using the Gel plate and one stencil, I was able to create 2 different backgrounds.

I began by adding paint to the 6" x 6" plate.  Using a brayer, I spread the paint across the plate.  Then I placed a Prima stencil in the wet paint.  Placing white cardstock on top and using a clean brayer, I pulled this amazing print.

After cutting it to fit, I matted it with Bazzill cardstock then adhered May Arts ribbonaround the panel before adding it to the card.

The Memory Box Butterfly was die cut twice for dimension.  Hang in there, from Heartfelt Creations, finished off the card and was die cut with Spellbinders dies.

Since I still had paint on my Gel plate, I placed another piece of cardstock on top and again used the brayer to remove the remaining paint.  The negative print is just as pretty as the original.

I cut the panel to 5" x 5", then placed it onto a card created from Bazzill cardstock.

The owls are from Heartfelt Creation's Sugar Hollow stamp set and were stamped with brown ink on a large tag.  A little color was added with Zig markers.

Thinking of you is from Stamping Bella's Winnie Peeking out the Window.  Scrapbook Adhesives 3D squares were used to add dimension on the card.

I hope I've inspired you to try a Gel plate today.

Thank you for stopping by today.
