Treats on Tueaday with Christine La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here, I've been playing with some of the new Dina Wakley gloss sprays on a gelli plate using  Kate Crane's instructions. You can't see it from the photographs but there is a gloss finish on the surface from the sprays. 
One thing I found was the card stock will stick to the gelli plate if you leave card on too long before pulling your print. I used Ranger archival ink to stamp the images and Posca Acrylic Paint pens to colour them.
For my first card I fussy cut the large daisy and glued on a colourful flat gem at the centre. I also used the "Words to Live by" stamp which I love, it's the perfect stamp for cutting up to use the individual words.

Salut tout le monde, c'est Christine ici, j'ai joué avec certains des nouveaux sprays brillants Dina Wakley sur une plaque gelli en utilisant les instructions de Kate Crane. Vous ne pouvez pas le voir sur les photos mais il y a une finition brillante sur la surface. Une chose que j'ai trouvée était que le papier cartonné collera à la plaque gelli si vous laissez la carte trop longtemps avant de tirer votre impression. J'ai utilisé de l'encre Archival pour étamper les images et des stylos de peinture acrylique Posca pour les colorer. Pour ma première carte, j'ai taillé la grande marguerite et collé un bijou plat coloré au centre. J'ai aussi utilisé l'étampe "Words to Live by" que j'aime, c'est l'étampe parfaite à découper des mots individuels.

My second card is an off cut of my gloss spray background, I'll add the sentiment later.

Ma deuxième carte est une coupe de mon fond de spray brillant, j'ajouterai le sentiment plus tard.

My third card I cut out some the "words to live by" and used a piece of my gelli print background. My Team mate Ellie Knol used some torn edges in her designs recently and loved the idea, so this is my version. I used a back pen to darken the torn edges so they stood out on the white background.

Ma troisième carte, j'ai découpé quelques "mots pour vivre" et utilisé un morceau de mon fond d'impression gelli. Ellie Knol DT chez Magenta a récemment utilisé des bords déchirés dans ses créations et a adoré l'idée, c'est donc ma version. J'ai utilisé un stylo arrière pour assombrir les bords déchirés afin qu'ils se détachent sur le fond blanc.

Love all three of those cards. I think the second one is my favourite as it is so pretty and so CAS. I really like the full text of the "Words to Live By" stamp on the first one, but it's equally great to just have a few of the words like on the third one. Great idea to edge the torn edges with a black pen.

Wonderful designs using your gelli prints for the backgrounds. You always find the most interesting mediums to work with. Gloss sprays sound very interesting. And I love your Posca pens and need to get some for myself to play with. :) The daisy is so pretty ... love that stamp and the sentiment stamp that can be used so many ways! Great work Christine!

Wow, Three awesome mixed media card designs, Christine. I Love all your Magenta new stamps and stencils and how you used the Words to Live by set. I think the 3rd card is my favorite. I loved the Gelli Plate background with your cool sprays, stamping and words and especially the torn edges with your white framing. I have not used torn edges for several years...maybe you will start a come back trend:-) TFS Hugs...Nancy
