The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

 Continuing with the January theme of Anything Goes at The House That 
 


 

This is the first card I made after creating numerous backgrounds with the Gelli
Plate I bought over the holidays.  It was so much fun creating backgrounds. I hesitated
to buy one as I did not like the lines a brayer leaves.  I decided to try Distress
Oxide Inks and they leave such a smooth canvas like look with no lines! I left this
one as is but have gone on to stencil, splatter etc on some of the other backgrounds
I made one my first time playing.

I wanted to try a gelli plate too, but they were mostly sold out when I looked for one. This turned out so pretty with a great colorful background. Thanks for the tip about which inks to use too :) Love the framed look on this great masculine card!

This is so beautiful, Donna! I have gelli plate on my wish list and will eventually get one - thanks for the tip about the Distress Oxides. Love the lighthouse stamp!

That's a super adorable card Donna!! I love the stamps and the background you created using then Gelli plate.. it does give a seamless background. The layering on the card is equally beautiful and the dies used to create an ornament for sentiments is so beautiful. Thank you for joining us at HLS Anything Goes with Dies Challenge!! XOXO

Gorgeous background. It has a watercolour quality to it, IMO, and is just as serene and lovely as can be.

Go you for using a Gelli plate, Donna, and figuring out how great the backgrounds are using the Oxies! This one couldn't be more perfect for that fabulous lighthouse image! Hugs, Darnell
