Hello and welcome crafty friends!
This fortnight at SHOPPING OUR STASH,
we want you to get messy!
Think glitter, powder inks, paint, etc.

I broke out my sadly neglected gel press, some paints and
stencils and made some prints. I quartered one of them to
create four cards!

Here are some close ups:




This is my favorite one from the bunch. I love this technique!

I hope that you find some time to join in our Make A Mess challenge
at Shopping Our Stash! We can wait to see what you come up with.

  1. Great job with the gel plate, I'm just learning so yours are so colourful and eyecatching, mine is boring. I will learn. I love all the cards but yes the eclipse technique is a favourite of mine too. awsome job.

  2. Wow, this is one bright and fun print! Now my gel plate seems to be calling me. The one page turned into a fantastic set of cards!

  3. Beautifully done! You should break out your plate more often!

  4. WOW WOW WOW these are so cool....I totally need to figure out what a gel plate is!!!
    Love these sistah! I am totes partial to the Hello one with the inlaid / coordinating letters!!!
