Thank You Mixed Media Challenges


I've heard people talking about gelli plates.  Don't have one, but was so inspired by Steph Ackerman at Eclectic Paperie-that I had to try something!!

I've had a couple of rubber shims to use with my Big Shot-but I don't use them!
I put some globs of paint on them, rolled over them, laid my Stencil by Retta on top and started playing!
Make no mistake about it-it was Messy!!  Reminded me of finger painting mess! LOL
But it worked!!

Below are some examples.  The right side I rubbed while the stencil was on top of the paint. Didn't get much color so I took the stencil off and rubbed the left side over top.  Look at the nice texture!!

 Here's another example.  I sprinkled black and purple paint watered down using a paint brush.
 Below is another example.
 My finished product!!  I inked the edges with Denium Blue distress ink.  Added a fussy cut stamped image from Unity Stamps.  The sentiment is a Stampin Up stamp (stamped with black stazon)

I LOVE how it turned out.  Can't wait to turn the rest of the pages into treasured cards.
