Flower Stencil with the Gelli Plate

Hello My Dear Stamper Friends:
I continue with the "fever" of Stencils and this time I decided to use the "Gelli Plate"
I featured this card at my French blog for Memory Box: " Un brin De Créativité"...

This is a new adventure for me because it is the first time that I use the "Gelli Plate" and I have to admit that it was quite intimidating at first...but there is a 1st for everything! right? and at the end,  I "manage" to make something!...

For the ones that do not know what is the "Gelli Plate" ..
It is a plate that looks and feels like gelatin, in which you can produce mono prints without the use of a press. It is reusable, easy to clean with water or hand sanitizer. You simply squeeze some (acrylic) paint on top of it, use a brayer to spread the paint , place a paper on top, press down, peel back to reveal whatever design you have place down on the plate! and here is where the possibilities are endless, because whatever you imagine to place and create on top of the "Gelli Plate" it is what you are "printing"...
For a Demo from "Gelli Arts" click HERE

step by step;
1- place 2 small drops of blue and magenta acrylic paint (Golden brand, because of their quality of transparency, high level of pigment and fluidity), mix and spread with the brayer
2- place paper on top, press down with brayer or hands and lift (to get the background color)  
3- clean plate with hand sanitizer and a paper towel

4- place a little drop  of magenta paint, spread with the brayer
5- place stencil on top
6- press down some wax paper (for cooking), lift : this is what it is called the 1st impression
7- remove  stencil from the plate
8- place final card stock on top and press down, lift to reveal design

the results are quite different...as you can see in the photo
and I added some liquid pearls all around the petals

and here are 3 different cards using the same stencil "Brillant Peony" from Memory box featuring different stencil techniques...

  1- the card on the left is done with the "Gelli Plate" 
(today's post)
2- thew one on the center presents the Stencil technique: 
Faux Cross-Stitch (see VIDEO)
3- and on the right this card was done with 
Beads and Molding Paste (see TUTORIAL)
