Never Alone

 This card came about after watching this video by Lydia from Understandblue. 
It was way back in 2007 when I bought my plate, but I never had success with it, and I put the plate away. But Lydia's video had me ready to try again, and finally, I had some success, and I had a great time. 
So this card is my first gelli print card, and I am happy to share it with you. 
 I used HP 32lb photocopy paper, which is a good quality photocopy paper, and Vicki Boutin Acrylic Paints. I love her paints, being drawn to them bu their magnificient and fun colours. For this card I used Juicy Pear, Orange Slice and Sugared Strawberry. The other colours you see are from the previous print I took off. 

One of the hints Lydia gives is to not be fussy about cleaning your plate in between, and I think this is great advice. I did not clean it until after 24 prints. 
I rolled on the paints, then would clean my roller on a separate piece of 80lb card stock, which is what I used to make my panel for my sentiment, using a sentiment from Picket Fence Studio and Ranger Archival Ink in Majestic Violet.
I attached the sentiment panel to my gelli print, then attached the print to 80 lb white cardstock. I then die cut the piece with my stitched rectangle die, and for depth I then attached it to fun foam using Scor Tape to attach. I finished by attaching the piece to a dark purple card base.

I hope you enjoyed this card today. Thank you for visiting.
