Gelli Plate paper creation

Well I made loads of gelli plate prints the other week but now what do I do with them???  hahaha

Whilst looking at this blue and white paper I thought it looked cool and frosty so used it to make a Christmas card.  I coloured in a Gorjuss girl in blue tone Copic Sketch Markers and added some acrylic rings (using a toilet roll of all things :) ) and then sprinkled on some silver glitter whilst the paint was still wet.

As I had some blue acrylic paint handy I painted an envelope and used the loo roll stamped into black this time to create some mail art.  Pink dots added with a cotton bud and some green lines stamped on top using a piece of corrugated box complete the make over. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Love the use of the loo roll and cotton bud - super prints and a lovely Christmas card - you could enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for August - I'd love to see it there. x
