A Little Gelli Art

One of my Christmas gifts to me was this fabulous new tool (if that is the correct word for FUN) called the Gelli Art Plate.  I played with it a bit when I first got it, but not liking my results I purchased a soft brayer and printed on cheap water color paper this time.....and my results were just fabby!
  
 This was my first sheet, and I had left some paint on my block from a previous trial....then stamped on it with large stamps.


After printing the first sheet I applied more paints of various colors without cleaning the plate and then stamped it and used bubble wrap for texture.

For print # 3, I added yellow, pink and blue.  This time I used stencils and bubble wrap, pretty cool huh! 

I made this card using a piece of the blue and a Nestie for the water.  The image is water colored using pencils.

I sent Lisa a few scraps just to intrigue her, and she amazed me with what she could do with 3, 1.4" scraps.  You must go see this!
