Gelli plate pink

This card is made with backgrounds created with the gelli plate and acrylic paint, using the mini echoes stencil by The cafters workshop that I showed here. The strip between the ribbons was created while the stencil was on the gelli plate and the main background was made when the stencil was removed. Both papers were from my scraps box, the main one being another piece of MME Andrea Victoria (the reverse side of golden damask). I think I was a bit heavy handed when pressing the paper for the main print, but I quite like the appearance - it doesn't look too neat! The dark flowers were from Poundland - I took off the gems from the middles and added the silk flowers with pearls from Create and Craft. The sentiment panel is one that I've had for ages (still got loads like it - never seem to use them nowadays).
