Have You "GELLIED" Yet?

It's SATURDAY!!! And today is the Drunken Stampers Challenge No. 143 - THING - Use a Die Cut... I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week... Just create a card Using any kind of Die cut, post a picture on your blog and then link your blog to the Challenge post at the Drunken Stampers Lounge by Friday, October 4th and you too could win the coveted "Life of the Party" blinky for your Blog!

Here is one of the cards I made for this Challenge.
Now I have a LOT of Dies for my Revolution die cutting machine, but to be honest, since I started playing with paint this year, my dies have been getting a little dusty... So this card challenge made me pull out some of them and Just WAIT until I tell you how I made use of BOTH my Dies and my Paints!  

Last weekend I took a class at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival from Karen Ellis and I got to play with Gelli Plate Mono-printing... basically smearing paint all over a piece of jelly-like substance, laying a stencil over top and then pressing my paper onto it.  
You Can Check Karen out at THE ART HOUSE STUDIO She is AWESOME!

You never know what you are going to get and you only GET ONE.... It was seriously messy and SERIOUSLY FUN! and I came home with a whole bunch of prints to use...So when I sat down to make my card using a die cut I was already thinking about how I could incorporate some of my prints into the card and this what I did...

Here is one of my prints
First I cut out my leaves on a 4x4 square of paper; then I used the "negative" or mask instead of the dies cuts and I glued the mask  over top of my gelliprint; the paper is quite thin, almost like tissue paper so it looked just lovely behind the leaf mask.  
Since I used my Xyron sticker machine to glue the mask to the print image there were quite a few glue lines showing so I covered the card with micro fine glitter and burnished it to turn an UGLY into an accent!  Then I picked out just one leaf die cut to add to the card as an accent.  I outlined the leaf images with a fine tipped black marker to make them stand out just a little more. And then, because I just LOVE to sparkle, I drizzled some liquid glass onto each leaf and sprinkled even MORE Micro fine glitter... and Voila - a wonderful, unique little card!
So that's it for this week's Drunken Stamper challenge ... Thanks for stopping by and make sure you go and check out what all my Design Team Peeps came up with!
