I was using the 8" round plate from Gelli Arts and was printing onto 8.5x11 white plain paper with great results. McKenna was using the 6" plate and made several dozen tags which she added to greeting cards. I didn't get photos of her beautiful projects--duh!
I took the stack of round images and simply cut each sheet into four panels measuring 3.75x5". Each panel had a fourth of the "pie" and allowed some open space for stamped images and greetings.
|Appropriate for our 15th anniversary . . . I went back a few years with my stamp selections.|
|Stamped images react differently on an acrylic paint base; heat set to dry.|
|As a whole, the printed image was cool, but I love it even more as a partial element on each card.|
|I enjoyed choosing a color-coordinating panel for each finished piece of art.|
|See how that bird is on top of the world?|
|I thought the green texture resembled a watermelon. Perfect for those Picnic stamps!|
|The black ink looks great on the colored background, but the watercolored flowers add so much!|
|I curved the "ants" image on the mounting block before stamping.|
|Stamps can be used to remove paint from the plate before creating the print. Be sure to clean the stamp immediately.|
