Today I’m excited to share a project I made for Sin City Stamps in partnership with Gelli Arts, the makers of Gel Printing Plates. I created a stamped image with an amazing background, all in one layer!
Many possibly know already what a Gelli Plate is, but in case you are not familiar with it I’ll give you a brief intro. A Gel Printing Plate looks and feels like gelatin, but is durable, reusable and stores at room temperature. It’s easy to clean and always ready for printing. Monoprinting on a Gelli plate is simple and fun. You can use it with acrylic or poster paints, and you may combine it with stencils, and masks. You can also create textures and patterns using a wide range of simple materials or tools. Once you press down your cardstock to the plate, you’ll get a great background, which will result different every single time. Warning: It may be addictive!
