Hitting Print

Hey there, Pocketeers!  I've been slowing down on the cards, but getting together with Zingala and RunningWave has spurred me to action a little bit more over the past couple of weeks.  Still only resulted in three cards, but I dug into my scraps and cutting dies a little more for these.  Plus, this weekend we got together to play a little bit with RunningWave's Gelli plate, with fun results. But first, the cards:
 


The primarily green one has ivy die-cut from one of the papers I printed on the Gelli plate.  The mushrooms collaged onto the other are from a napkin I had in my stash.


The banners and the edging at the top are cut with Spellbinders dies.


My favorite prints from our Gelli Plate adventures, with leaves die cut from one of them, and what's left of the paper I cut the ivy from for the green card.


I love the layers and peel-y look here.

This was a ghost print after pulling a print through a stencil.  Look at that delicious texture.

In two weeks the three of us are taking a class together on using the Gelli plate, so I'm looking forward to learning different tricks and techniques for getting unique prints.  And I kind of want my own plate, but where on Earth I'm going to put it is a different story...

That very Medieval stencil pattern printed as the ghost print looks so incredibly cool! I think your Gelli prints came out well and perhaps they will fuel more of your card-making adventures.

My favorite is that mushroom card. :-)

I agree with Maria, my favorite is the mushroom card. But, I love all your cards. You are keeping more to a theme than I am, in subject matter and color. Really cool!

I love your cards - the mushroom one especially is gorgeous, I could see that on my wall, and I am hankering after those beautiful banner and edging dies of yours! Those are great gelli prints you did - it's fun isn't it - I love how you never know what you are going to get with the print, even if you plan it! Fab work and so lovely to get together with like minded artists to spur each other on.
