Gelli Plate Leftovers


Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the U.S. today.  I hope you enjoy a day with many blessings.

I am playing along with the challenge at Splitcoast this am; to use leftovers on our card.
Easy, right?  I keep all my leftovers and rejects for (hopefully) future uses.  Today was a good day to use a piece of paper I printed using my Gelli Plate.

I think most of you are probably familiar with the Gelli Plate.  For those of you that are not, it is a gel- like piece that you apply ink or paint mediums onto, press objects into paint  and print paper from that.  This piece reminded me of the frost patterns I see on my windows on a cold winter morning.
(I used the plastic Copic markers dividers you get when you buy a large pack of them to press into the paint.  It gave me the grid pattern you see above) 

 Here is a link to the official Gelli Plate site if you would like to see more:

I die cut the snowflake from SSS and mounted it.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Frosted window panes, candles gleaming inside. Well you have the first part of the song down pat, Karen. Using your Copic divider as a grid was inspired to say the least. I'm glad you shared this with us at ATSM this week.
