Winter stag


I've been making a few Christmas cards with the Gelli plate by printing straight on to the card blank. I've used Distress ink with a Giogiocraft stencil and some stamping on top. Where I was generous with the ink it has created speckles and texture, with less ink I achieved a smoother, flatter finish.

Some cards use the print and others the ghost print.

No two are exactly alike.

I used a stamping platform for the stag and stamped it twice, once in a lighter colour and then again with darker ink around the edges to give a little depth. I used a stencil brush with the stencil to add a little extra colour and stencilled some ground with a scrap of torn paper.

I really can't decide which I like best. As always your thoughts are very welcome.

Thank you for stopping by xx


  1. Great card collection. I like them all really but the third one just seems to stand out for me. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Angela xXx

  2. Personally I try to avoid beading! Pigment inks, Brilliance, Versafine clair and others would be my choice for this technique. The design is great, try it with sticky inks! x
