Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with some acrylic block and Gelli plate plate print backgrounds for these great stamps.
After trying with both m acrylic block and my gelli plate in my stamp positioner I think I like the acrylic block print better, I love the more fluid effect.
To create the print swipe your ink pad over the surface of the block or gelli plate, then spritz with water and placed the block/gelli plate on the mixed media card stock. I love the way the colour puddles and the colours run into each other with the acrylic block. I outlined my sentiments with a black brush pen by running the pen along the edge.
Card number 1 and 2 are made using an acrylic block, card 3 is a small gelli plate. 

Card 1 I stamped the leaf image using Distress inks and pulled the colour in with a wet brush, then re-stamped the image so it was a little crisper.

Card 2 I did the same adding some stenciling to the background.

Card 3 was made using a Gelli plate, I just swiped the colours and then spritzed with water.
I coloured the leaves with pencils and then re stamped. I masked the edge of the background and stamped the script in green.

I love that look of swiping and spritzing and the way the colors join together. The Gelli plate gave such a smooth look that is beautiful. Three great cards, Christine.

Three great cards with fabulous backgrounds. You know how much I love bird stamps so needless to say, the second card is my favourite. I love not just the bird, but also the notebook die with the torn black cs behind it.

These are all beautiful. I do like the results from the blocks, too… better blending and movement.
