Gelli Plate meets Gilding Flakes – Mixed Media Tutorial

Hi everyone, Laura here! I have a fun tutorial to share with you today creating mixed media backgrounds with my gel plate (mine is from gel press) and gilding flakes! Combined with some stamps it’s an amazing technique to create really unique and quick arty greeting cards. I am using some flower images from Doodle Flowers and Pencil Marks 4 today.

You can add gilding flakes to your gel plate in the same way you add your first coat of paint. Simply sprinkle the gilding flakes where you would like them! I also used them through the ink dots stencil and also freestyle too as shown below.

When I finished playing with my stamps and stencils and created a variety of prints I then chose to turn them into greeting cards with a very arty feel about them.

I chose to add some stamping and white heat embossing to two of my gel prints and once I had added some more interest to them I cut them down to 4 x 4 inches squared and then added a mat layer of cardstock and some foam squares to the back to give it some dimension and placed them both on 6 x 6 card blanks. I added a sentiment to one, but chose to leave the other sentiment free.

I hope you like these and I hope it gives you some inspiration! Don’t forget to leave a comment on the blog too and share your makes in the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge Facebook group 🙂
