a set of three atcs


Here is a set 
of three atcs,
all using 
backgrounds 
made
from Gelli Plate 
prints.

(Gelli Plate printing is,
in fact, addictive--they
should come with a
warning label!)


The images are stamped 
on papers colored with watercolor washes, using
images from the Grunge Collages  set.

Isn't that a sweet stamp?
These are going out for
a blissfulART atc swap. 

Got that autumn theme going on,
but with non traditional colors . . . 
what do you think?  Too bright? 
I have to add
crayon around the
edges, don't you
know!  And tulle,
almost always 
some of that, too.

The German scrap
and bling, those
are bonuses . . .

Have a great 
Sunday, everyone!

The crayon on the edges appears to bring out the backgrounds even more so.
That is a sweet image of mother and child.

It IS sweet, isn't it? It's one of my favorite stamps right now, I have to admit . . . that little baby hand reaching out, so cute.

These are really beautiful, Trish. And I love the crayon around the edges - it really does finish off the pieces. Really like the stamps - I love religious images, but don't have a single stamp of one.

Does the top one have tulle...or sequin scrap...or...?

These are beautiful! Love the stamping on colorwashed paper, the Gelli Plate background (I'm also addicted), the German scrap - oh, just everything!

Really beautiful Trish. I just got a Gelli Plate and played with it for the first time today. So much fun!

Samantha Elliott said...

This is gorgeous Trish. Will have to look into Gelli Plates...sounds like I have something missing from my collection!

Nah, you can try monoprinting without one, first, to see if you like it--just use a cookie sheet or tray. But it IS easier with one. Or you can make your own gelatin plate, but honestly, the Gelli is better, in my opinion--you don't have to make it yourself, you don't have to worry about storing it in the fridge, and it doesn't mold.

Uh oh, now Mary is addicted, too!
