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

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with some Quick Clean and Simple cards which can be used for so many occasions. I'll add the sentiments when I need them.
I used some of my smaller Gelli Plates to create some quick backgrounds on these cards.
I mounted the 4" circle for the first two cards onto an acrylic block. I swiped the gelli plate with some Colour box (Stephanie Barnard) Dye ink and then brayered the colours together.
The gelli plate can now be used as a stamp to create the background image and die inks leaves a beautiful mottled colour perfect for silhouette or detail image stamps.

You cans see the brayer line on the second one but to me it looks like the light shining through. 

For this one I used a small rectangular plate and a dark blue dye ink, I also stamped the gelli plate with the love and music stamp before stamping with it. Once stamped I taped the edge to add the background sentiment stamp, then removed the tape to stamp the willow branch. I used a gold Sharpie marker to outline the edge before layering it on the card base.

I love these reflective birds and this one is colored beautifully and the gel plate background is perfect for it! Love the background on the second that does look like the sun shining through clouds. The blue background is a great base for this silhouette!
