Hello bloggers over at Craft Stamper Mag The New Take It Make It monthly challenge which follows a technique by Trish Latimer on page 6 of the April issue. Now I love playing with my gelli plate and so I couldn't wait to have a go using an acrylic block with paints and got very messy indeed also I couldn't stop so now have lots of prints to play with later. I used test pots which I have had for ages in pink, beige, green and white I followed Trish's step by step.
I applied the paint quite thickly which made some lovely texture when I lifted the print also I managed three from one paint application each one different as the paint was used. Only snag with this was it took a while to dry........and you know I'm don't do waiting very well........but I managed to leave them over night lol!!
Firstly I used two stencils with distress ink over the paint and then I stamped the tag using a selection of Tim Holtz stamps in black archival ink, panel edges were distressed and inked with black soot distress ink also tag edges, lastly I added tissue tape. Great fun and so glad I managed to join in with the first challenge over at my all time favourite Magazine.
