Morning All: Yesterday as I was cleaning up from my play, I decided to do one last play and pulled out my paper tape that I get at the dollar store to do a couple of test pulls, I was delighted. I layed strips of the tape to a sheet of card stock for the pull. Now, if you are doing this you do not want to let the washi tape completely dry on the card stock, the tape is porous and will stick itself to the cardstock, so when it was partially dry, I removed it and laid it down on a piece of transparency, great holder for the tape, you can punch holes on the left side of the transparency and store in a binder until you are ready to use it. I love how it turned out. I also realized yesterday that I have 1/2 a dozen or so of the fiskars texture plates, I have almost thrown them out a couple of times, LOL, what was I thinking? They are pretty great with the gelli plate. This is a great way to coordinate with your fantastic gelli pull backgrounds, happy Tuesday, hugs

Yeah! I am so excited lately when I get a card done, not many of those gonna on right now. I used Tim Holtz Stamp behind the flower stems and leaves and cannot remember who is the mfgr of the cute buttons. Everything else is my design.
The stems and leaves are torn book page, color by color blocks, some Tim Holtz distressing ink and gesso. Hope everyone has a happy weekend. hugs

So here is the pull, in PhotoShop6 I layered this over my background and took the tranparency down to a little under 75% and made it a little smaller than the background paper. I used my brayer to apply some old Making Memory paint I had and did a pretty thin layer, then I drew the symbols in with my palette knife. I got 2 pulls from the plate.

This is my last leaf for a while, I have to move on, so much to do, this is one of my favorites backgrounds, to me it looks like a book plate of sherwood forest. I thought I would make a positive out of "Can't see the forest through the trees". So, I am off to the grocery store, hugs to you!

Hey, happy Wednesday, Oh my goodness, I am as happy as a Geico commercial, ROFL. This card is rather simple if you don't take into consideration it took me all day to make the elements, but that's okay cause now I have them to use when ever. It took both big guys to get this one done, PS6 and the Cameo and I have to say it is a love story, lol. Hope everyone is grooving into the 2nd part of their week, til next time, hugs
