An Art Tag with Prima

Bubble Your Troubles Away


Happy Friday everyone.  My project this week allowed me to get messy, happy, painty fingers!  How?  I made several monoprints with my gel plate for the under-the-sea theme of today's card project.  The prints are in a variety of beautiful blues, greens and purples.  Lost Coast Designs has the most awesome background stamp which gave great motion to the "water".  A couple stamps from the Mailbox Muse mermaid kit complete the scene.

The how-to info for these two cards is posted over at the Altered Pages blog, which you can see by clicking HERE.







I have a lot more mermaid cutting out to do to put the rest of the cards together but I really want you to see how pretty the rest of these backgrounds are.

Mix and Match with your Gel Press plate

Stop by the Altered Pages blog and see my latest project using a Gel Press plate.  The end result reminds me of camouflage with the gears in the background, I really think it needs an image of a jeep or two to go on in.  See how they came together by clicking here.
