ID: MC Aug/13 - Gelli Plate - Seashell Tranquility card
size: 5.5"w x 4.25"h

Created: August 11, 2013

I was in a mood to use my Gelli Plate... and one of the challenges calls for using one or all of a color combo - I used all of them.

I'm also using a word from the Gentle Word set from Quietfire Design 


I prepared my white side folded card. Made a cut out stencil (3/4" border frame) which I temporarily adhered to my card front.

I pounced Distress Paints (Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint, Antique Bronze & Broken China) onto my gelli plate, misted with water and then blended a bit with my finger. Pressed my card front down and then carefully removed it... (well not so carefully as it turned out, because I had a touch of paint on the bottom edge of my card, so used the edge of a piece of cardstock as a mask and then lightly applied the Ant Bronze as a border. voila, covered the boo boo...)

Stamped the shell (Impression Obsession "Spiral Shell") with the Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Stamped the quote with the black as well.

Another very quick and easy card.
