Savvy Creations with Cassandra / Créations avisées avec Cassandra

Hello Magenta Friends! Cassandra here with part two of my circular gelli print silhouette cards. In my last month's post (found here), I shared a warm colour pair. Today, I am sharing a pair of cool colour gelli print silhouette cards.

I used a small amount of Cerulean Blue and Grass Green Nuance
mixed with water and brushed onto a round 4" gelli plate. I added 2 drops of clear gesso and rolled it out before taking a print pull on a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" white cardstock cardbase. I deepened the colour by increasing the powder-to-water ratio which you can see on the card below.

Prior to pulling the gelli print, I stamped the Foliage stamp twice on the gelli plate. Once it was dry, I used a white gel pen to outline the leaves. Next, I stamped the Foliage stamp with Black Soot Archival ink. Then, I inked up the birds on the Birdsong Duet - Branches with Black Soot Archival ink multiple times using a stamp repositioning tool. Then, I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment with the archival ink and clear heat embossed it. To complete this card, I used a black pen to doodle faux stitched circles around the edge of the gelli print.

On the next card, I stamped with the Curved Branch leaves in two orientations, again with the use of a stamp positioning tool. Then, I stamped and clear heat embossed the Sending Hugs sentiment. Next, I heat emboss stamped the Butterfly onto vellum, watercoloured it with the Cerulean Blue and Grass Green Nuance powder prior to fussy cutting it and adhered it over the leaves.

Thanks a bunch Christine! That gelli circle plate is pretty addictive and made for many circular prints. :)
