Gelli Plate Print Christmas Tag & Give-Away!!

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you're all having a great week so far...

Before Thanksgiving I was playing with the Gelli Plate and holiday color paints (Deco Art Metallics).  Well today I wanted to share another fun tag that I made that I printed that day.  (it's the one in the center in behind the holly tag).


Now this isn't just a plain tag.  Because I hate to waste art supplies I always keep spare tags handy when I'm working on mixed media projects because I don't like to just throw away excess art mediums.  So for example you know how you always have extra bits of gesso when working on a canvas or something, well instead of just wiping it off on a paper towel I smear the extra gesso on tags in no particular pattern to clean off the knife.  Works great and I've got a fresh canvas just waiting to be turned into art!

So I used this tag to pick up some of the excess paint when I was between prints and it turned out lovely.  I knew it would make a really fun Christmas tag with very little work!  Below you can see that I have stamped a few generic images - dot pattern, text and a crackle pattern all using Stazon Ink.  I then stamped the holly and poinsettia images and colored both using Memento markers.

Looks great so far huh?


Well with a few extra bits - Pico Embellisher, a collage image from Altered Pages, a couple of stamped Candy Canes, some glitter here and there and finally a bit of trim n ribbon and here's what you get....


Now how easy was that?


Supplies Used: Gelli Arts Plate; Deco Arts Metallic Paints; Just For Fun Rubber Stamps; IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Luxe Inks - Pistachio, Peanut Brittle, StazOn Inks - Emerald City, Black, Spiced Chai, Pico Embellisher - Tuxedo Black, Embossing Powder; Altered Pages Mid Century Christmas Collage Sheet, Trim, Flat Green Jute, Sari Ribbon, Glitter

So I thought it would be nice to share this fun 
with one lucky reader...
no, not the tag silly...
but a 5x7 Gelli Arts Printing Plate!!!

5x7” Gelli Arts® Printing Plate

I don't mind having to be a frugal crafter most of the time, but I really want one of these as I have paints, inks, masks and everything else already, yep I'm a crafting geek lol! Thank you for the chance though Karen x

  11. Roni... I am loving your creation... I don't have a gelli plate and need to get one because the design team I'm on we are going to be doing a project in a few months using them, so this is great inspiration. Although I am always inspired by your work and techniques. Thanks for partying with us at Unruly !
