Stencils, Gelli Plate and Distress Paints!

 Hello friends. Too much fun playing with a Gelli Plate, stencils and Distress Paints. What a combination. Today I am posting these for The Funkie Junkie Boutique.


Check out these fun prints! I have a video HERE.


When I started this project, I was not sure of Distress Paints would work with a Gelli Plate. I was pleased with the outcome despite the beading that occurred.


Create the Bases

Gather your tools - Gelli Plate, Ink Brayer and Paints. Lay the Gelli Plate on your craft mat. Add a few drops of the Distress Paints onto the plate and use the brayer to spread evenly. I used Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry.

Lay the stencil of choice on top, followed by cardstock. I chose THS 182 Deco Floral. I used 5.5 x 8.5 inches to give me some wiggle room. Smooth the top of the paper to pick up the imprint. Peel the cardstock and set aside to dry.

Quickly, remove the stencil and add another piece of white cardstock and smooth to get the image.

Immediately, take the stencil, brayer and Gelli Plate to the sink and wash. Once dry trim to fit an A2 base with a border.



Use double sided adhesive sheets to attach a piece of Halloween Collage paper onto an A2 card base. You can choose any of the Collage Papers.

Create the Embellishments

Use CMS 482 Curiosity Shop to stamp typewriter and letter using Black Soot Archival Ink. Fussy cut or use the coordinating dies available from Simon Says Stamps.


Assemble the Cards

To soften the stark white background, use Antique Linen Distress Ink and blend over the entire top of the painted base, the typewriter and the letter.

Attach the stenciled base, followed by the typewriter and the letter.

Add Cello Tape as a fun accent!


This is Card number 2. 


If you look closely, you can see where the paint beaded up slightly. This was the unexpected result of the Distress Paints on the Gelli Plate.
