Pink Pretty

Here is another Gel Plate print that I made while I was taking a class from Vicki fun.
This leaf is a mask called Skeleton Leaf from ACLD called and I just love the detail I was able to get using it.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I started by getting out this Gel Plate print I had made during the class.  I made it by brayering some pink paint onto my Gel Plate, then pressed the Skeleton Leaf mask over the plate being sure to get good contact.  
  • I lifted the stencil, then let the paint on the plate dry. (to get a good 'ghost' print on your Gel Plate, you need to be sure and let the paint on the plate dry completely)
  • When the plate was totally dry, I brayered some white acrylic paint over it all...a thin coat, then rubbed on my cardstock to lift the print.
  • When the print was dry, I placed it into my Misti and stamped the sentiment from Pinkfresh Studios. 
  • I sprayed the panel with some Sheer Shimmer to give it a bit of sparkle and interest.
  • Finally, I glued it onto a heavy white card base and then added 3 gems to finish it off.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Here is the mask I used:

A great skeleton leaf stencil and perfect for using with the gelli plate Karen, and what is prettier than pink, and the added white to emphasise the veins of the leaf and some added wonderful shimmer spray too. x
