Attending crops is always a learning experience. I attended a crop yesterday and one of our members taught us about using Gelli Plates. I have owned a gelli plate for a white but had never used it before. The blue and white background on the card was created using a gelli plate. The background was trimmed to size and adhered to a white card base. I like the way the blue paint combined with the white paint to create slate undertones in the background.
My card has been submitted to the following challenges:
1. Cardz 4 Guyz #182 (Create an interesting masculine Christmas tree.)
