Christmas Cards

Since buying the set of 3 little Gel Press plates I have become rather obsessive about them and have made a huge pile of prints and a stack of card bases. Some of these have finally become Christmas cards - I had to stop when I realised I had more than enough for this year! So, the rest will become birthday cards at some point.

All of these ones in this photo are made using DecoArt Media Acrylics, I like that because they are so highly pigmented you only need to have a very thin film of paint on the Gel Press plate which lets the underneath design show through well. Some of them have more paint because I wanted a bolder look.

And a closer look ........

I did also make some using inks rather than paints and they turned out really nice but were far more subtle. Unfortunately I have already sent those off to people so can't show them here.
