Gelli Plate and DecoArt = AMAZING CARD

DecoArt Owl Stencil = FUN!

I used Americana Paint, gelli plate to create my base.
Roll on a layer of Milk Chocolate-lay the stencil in place.
blot - pic #1
immediately peel your stencil off and lay it down & clean off. pic #2
Allow to completely dry before applying the next color.
 Roll on Light Buttermilk.  Lay your cardstock on top & rub really good. When you pull your print-it's already dry!
 I "embellished" the owl by adding some details with DecoArt Paper Effects.
They come with a fine tip to add to the regular tip on the bottle. Will give you a really fine line. Went around the edges and his eyes with Black Pearl.  Used Golden Pearl around the circles in his stomach. (funny how I'm identifying the owl as a male!!)  The dots in the center of his eye is White Pearl. Allow to dry & then add your embellishments.

Turned out to be a beautiful card!  I even used DecoArt Metallics on the black circle and sentiment. Using my finger, I rubbed some Orange Flicker.

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
