Perfect backgrounds with Gel Press

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today wishing you a happy day.

Have you tried using the Gel Press Monoprinting plates?  Gel Press plates come in a variety of sizes and allow you to create amazing designs.

Using the Gel plate and one stencil, I was able to create 2 different backgrounds for these cards.

I began by adding paint to the 6" x 6" plate.  Using the Gel Press Economy Brayer, I spread the paint across the plate.  Then I placed a Prima Netting stencil in the wet paint.  Placing white cardstock on top and using a clean brayer, I pulled this amazing print.

After cutting it to fit, I matted it with Bazzill Peanut Cluster Cardstock then adhered May Arts ribbon around the panel before adding it to the card.

The Memory Box Butterfly was die cut twice for dimension.  Hang in there is from Heartfelt Creations You're a Hoot stamp set finished off the card and was die cut with Spellbinders dies.
Since I still had paint on my Gel plate, I placed another piece of cardstock on top and again used the brayer to remove the remaining paint.

I cut the panel to 5" x 5", then placed it onto a card created from Bazzill Peanut Cluster Cardstock.

The owls from Heartfelt Creation's Sugar Hollow You're a Hoot stamp set were stamped with Memento Ink on a large tag.  A little color was added with Copic Markers.

Thinking of you is from Stamping Bella's Winnie Peeking out the Window.  Scrapbook Adhesives 3D squares were used to add dimension on the card.

I hope I've inspired you to try a Gel plate today.

Thank you for visiting
