Atlantic Hearts Sketch #183

Welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch!  I was having super fun playing with my gelli plate and some new acrylic paints I picked up.  The pinky reddish background was a result of the gelli plate and stencils.  I truly love working with this technique.

Once they were dry, I used embossing paste and glitter and a pumpkin patch stencil.  I colored the pumpkins with my spectrum noir markers and added a few embellishments.  

I hope you'll consider designing a card for the challenge this week!  Thank you for stopping by!

It's Technique Tuesday! Gelli Plate printing for card backgrounds!

I am just loving playing with my Gelli Plate.  It has been my go-to in the craft room lately.  I'm not sure if I like making a mess or the end results better!

This is the first Technique Tuesday video since my relocation to Georgia.  I'm still trying to figure out the lighting, sound, etc - so this was the first attempt.

I hope you enjoy this video!  If you love the Gelli Plate as much as I do, there are also more economical printing plates available on Amazon.  They are new to the market and people are seeing good results.  Enjoy!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #181

This stamp was too cute not to buy!!!  Welcome back to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch!  Thank you so much for joining us this week.

This was a simple design because I really didn't want to take anything away from the sentiment.  I snuck this card into Sean's work bag while he was traveling for a few days.  I sure hope it brought a smile to his face when he saw it!

I hope you'll consider designing a card this week!
