A Gelli Background

Hello to you all, I was watching some Barbara Gray you tube videos and decided I quite like the look of this Gelli Printing...So off I went and got myself a Gelli Plate and Brayer,last night I was having a play with some instruction from Barbara and was so made up with my first print I decided to make it into a card...I used Beach Hut and Stone fresco paints and  the Clarity Leafy Swirl stencil... I  know I will be doing this a lot more I loved making my own backgrounds.xxx
Thank you Barbara.
I am entering this into
Clarity Stamps "Anything Goes" 
Not sure if this will count as the sentiment is not one of barbara's.

Wow, well done if this is you're first attempt. Mine all ended in the bin and I have't got it back out again yet. Well that's a slight lie, I have used it with ink pads and a brayer and quite like the results from that, just not paint.

This is lovely Doreen and your coordinating butterfly looks fab. I have fancied the look of a gelli plate too but it's on the ever growing wish list at the moment.
