Strip My Gears

Hi! Laura here posting a masculine Halloween card 
or maybe just a I love you card for your guy!
I have used a Gelli Plate for my card.
Gelli Arts are our sponsor this month at Sin City Stamps.
I have to tell you it has been an experience using the Gelli Plate.
One I am not quite comfortable with yet 
but I do love playing with it.
You have to try it! It's fun (but messy) ..Did I say it was fun?
I have played for 3 or 4 days but wasn't happy with anything I made
but did this today. I hope you like it...

Products I used today

Brayer, Acrylic Paint - orange and metallic purple
Black Ink, ribbon and lots of copy paper.
TH craft mat.

One of the videos I watched said the gelli plate has to 
be on a porous surface. I left  it on the bottom piece of plastic.
I also put it on my TH craft sheet.

I put paint on the gelli plate then added the mask.

I added the next colour and use some different masks.

Here is the gelli plate with purple acrylic paint on it. 

Add your tag...then I put copy paper over
just to press the tag down.

The purple paint was metallic ..
You can see how it smeared abit but
I love how it looks.

On the right is the gelli plate with paint on it
and I pressed the stamp on it.
Isn't it cool how the gelli plate holds the stamp..

This is the next layer on the tag.

On this one I used my fingernail to make this pattern.

The next one is done with more masks layered over the purple.

I made the tags into a card. I thought about adding this
ribbon to make it more for Halloween but
I liked the other ribbon better.

As you can see below I stamped strip my gears on 
the middle tag.

Here is my finished card...
