Gelli plate print

I received my gelli plate a couple of weeks ago, but this morning is the first time that I've had it out of the package and had a play with it. I've already discovered what not to do as well as, I hope, what to do in future. Like everything else, it's a learning curve - or rather a 'playing' curve, because that's what you need to do - play!

So this is my first attempt at creating a background using various acrylic paints, sequin waste, masks and Tim Holtz stampers anonymous ultimate grunge stamps.

I added a piece of Papermania sparkly ric rac, a Kanban sentiment and stamped a Clarity stamp called 'leafy column' inked with memento tuxedo black.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
