Gelli Plate background Fairy Card

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

WOW had a fabulous day with my crafty buddy Kath.  We spent the morning making lots of lovely backgrounds with our Gelli Plates.  We sure got mucky paws LOL!  I love the background I have made and even used Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium on it too, it works a treat!  You will be seeing a lot of cards over the coming weeks with the background created with my Gelli Plate.

Tonight I have made a card using one of the backgrounds.


Recipe

1. Stamp shaped card from Hunkydory which I have matted and layered at an angle purple paper which I have distressed the edges with Dusty Concord.
2. The background I have used purple acrylic paint and added a flourish, once this was dry I added blue acrylic paint to the Gelli plate and pressed the Heart Flourish Stencil from Imagination Crafts which I then put onto the background.  I then used Dusty Concord over this, then layered this onto the purple card.
3 Using Archival black ink I stamped the fairy and leaves both from Lavinia onto the background.
4. I added 3 flowers and a butterfly which have been distressed with Lilac shade added pearls to the centres of the flowers, butterfly and the two corners.

Thank you for stopping by Today
