Gelli Print Dresses


This is how I feel about my Gelli prints.  I rarely get a whole page that is perfect, but I always get parts that I love.  I've been trying to use more of those bits. 

Here are a few of the prints I used:




 Enter the Gelli dress:



I stamped this Dawn Houser My Mother's Dress stamp onto the Gelli prints.   I like stamping with VersaFine pigment ink because it captures all the detail in this stamp.  I finish the stamping with clear embossing.

Then I cut out the stamped dress, but  I didn't try to cut out the hanger!  Even my limited drawing skills were enough to draw in the hanger.


I had a group of clear border stamps that I never used.  I glued them on some pieces of wooden rulers and now I find all kinds of ways to use them.  I've started gluing down clear stamps and find them so much easier to use that the acrylic mounting foofaraw.  (If space and cash were unlimited, I'd only use wood mounted stamps)!



Love these frilly Gelli print dresses.

  5. What a really great idea. I have found different ways to use parts of pages too like one part that looked like a mountain landscape with trees. Not sure how that happened but its going on a card for someone in the near future. It's amazing what we can do if we have the eyes and the will to see things in the imperfect. Thank you for sharing the lovely dresses.
