Simple Print

Today's card is a simple Gel Plate print using some grasses I picked on a walk.
The grasses make such a lovely, natural looking print.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I got out my Gel Plate and pressed some Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and some Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink directly onto the plate.
  • I brayered the colours together loosely, not too concerned about covering the whole plate with ink.  
  • I laid the grasses I have brought home on the plate, then rubbed my cardstock onto the plate and took the print.
  • It dries almost instantly, so I placed it into my Misti and stamped the sentiment to the side.
  • I splattered with my white and black Posca pen to add interest.
  • I glued the print onto a piece of white cardstock, then onto a pale pinkish cardstock, then onto an A2 size card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
