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

Hi everyone, I'm here this week playing with some Alcohol inks on a round gelli plate. I just love the look of the of colours and the irregular outline when you pull the print.
I mixed a couple of colours of Alcohol ink on the gelli plate by adding blending solution to the ink and moved it around the plate with one of the hand held puffer.
As you can see this technique works so well with silhouette images. To add a little interest the outline of the ink is edged with a gel pen, I used Gold on the first and last and used silver for the middle card.
The print is pulled on regular smooth card stock and it seems to pull all the ink of the plate. You can clean your gel plate with hand sanitizer if there is a little staining..

The silhouette images look beautiful over your wonderful alcohol ink backgrounds Christine, and I haven't used a gelli plate with alcohol inks yet but this is a technique I will definitely try. x

It's like looking through a hole in a white card into another world! It's an amazing feeling and I want to go to the other side to see more. I love the color AI blots and black stamping.
