 Another Gelli plate card to share today, made sense to do a few pieces while I was in the mood and before I tidy it all away again and get onto another favourite technique or maybe I'll try something new., who knows?  This time a favourite die cut flower has been added once the background was completed and the raindrop stamp is one which I've had for many years although it's not been used for a while.

Raindrops - stamp from Stamps by Ryn which I've had for many years
Flower - die cut from Tim Holtz wild flowers die set
Sentiment - from a magazine freebie set

Clean and Simple

 Sharing a card today in the CAS style - managed without any smudges too which is a result 😉😉. Thought it was about time I looked out my Gelli plates and for this card I've used a 3 inch square mini plate along with a stencil and a bit of stamping.  Original Distress inks were used on this occasion. The effect of the stencil is very subtle and actually shows up better for real than it does on the screen - think I need more practice with this technique.

Pixie Snippets Challenge #406

 My card today is for the latest challenge over at the Playground and there is a lovely prize on offer this time, well worth popping over to take a look if you are a fan of inky backgrounds and don't like getting messy.   I do enjoy a bit of inky play I must say but for my card today I've been stamping, colouring and fussy cutting as well as using up some of my snippet mountain.  As is usually the case, everything came from my snippets collection, apart from the base card.  This is a favourite stamp set and the birds can be any variety, real or imagined, depending on the way they are coloured.  The floral background was the last remnant of a 12" sheet which has stretched to several cards, and the curvy green piece of card was also a leftover.  Birds were stamped onto snippets of watercolour paper and I finally cut a label for the sentiment and punched a couple of tiny hearts.
