Gel Plate Impressionism


I found an exciting new challenge blog!  Beyond the Blue  that shows some interesting new techniques to try in making your cards.  They included a short instructional video.  Playing with my Gel plate has been a new thing, and so I was inspired to give it a go.  It was a bit messy and it took 3-4 attempts to get something I felt could be saved. lol   New techniques require some practice and patience.  

The one I'm sharing here still has rough edges, but it felt like a seaside storm to me and the more I look at it the more I like it.  This is certainly a technique I will continue to work with and perfect. It is very rewarding to use stamps, inks and supplies in new ways.  The image and sentiment are from a long retired and favorite set from Close to My Heart, Perfect Day
