Gelli Plate Infusions Cards for PaperArtsy Challenge


Thought I'd do a quick post for the PaperArtsy Infusions and Paints challenge whilst I'm at Mum's, hence the tiled coffee table. I'm definitely not very expert with Infusions. I had my friend round to craft on Thursday and all my playing around was a mess. Then yesterday I decided to play with a small round gelli plate I hadn't used yet. I brayered on some cheap white acrylic paint and then sprinkled on the Infusions. I used orange county, the sage, are you cerise, and a bit jaded. I used a very small spritz of water. Then I used stencils, LB005, KD034, and another one I had with tiny circles. It was loosely based on an amazing blog post Ellie Knoll did for PaperArtsy.  I used some old square card blanks I didn't like very much as I was just playing and 'stamped' the gelli plate directly into the centre. Well, nearly the centre. Then I repeated the process until I had something I liked. It was glorious fun!



Then this afternoon Mum and I have had a lovely time. I got her some fabulous new colouring books and I'm going to wrench them off her later. So she's been happy whilst I've been getting some jobs done and finishing these cards off with some simple stamping in black archival. I used LB22 and LB29, and the feather from EDY09. Don't you just love that feather!
