Mixed Media Fun Times Three!

There's nothing like a little Gelli Plate fun to jump start your creativity! Using the Gelli Arts Plate, and  DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Coastal Waters, Citron Green and Orange Sherbet and a stencil from Just a Trace, I created three background panels.

Next, I added some stamped images, more stencils, Gesso and Modeling Paste to created three cards from the monoprinted backgrounds.

My first card uses stamps from Prima and Verses Rubber Stamps

Other - Ink Blending Tool, Bo Bunny Pattern Paper, DecoArt Decou-Page/Gesso/Modeling Paste/Americana Multi Surface Acrylic Paint Coastal Waters, Citron Green, Orange Sherbet, Just a Trace Stencils, Gelli Arts Gell Printing Plate, Brayer
