Gelli Plate Tag.

     Happy New Year everyone. 
    I hope you had a great Christmas.
    We spent loads of time with family and friends .... cracking stuff!

My DT sample Tag was made using
a super Christmas present that I received from my friend
Melissa. A Gelli Plate.
Easy to use, you can create stunning backgrounds and pattens.
I brayed on some acrylic paint over the Gelli Plate.. dragged a plastic comb through the paint, then laid a sheet of paper over the top, pressing down gently and then lifted it off … bingo!
I left it to dry, die-cut the tag and finally stamped over the top using some Dylusions, leaves and flowers Stamps.
Thanks for looking today.
I'll be back soon.
I hope 2013 will be kind to us all! 
Lots going on this week......Mmmmmm .. oh yes indeed!

  1. Lovely tag Eileen, your girls are on yesterdays blog. Happy New Year. XXX

  2. Oo this is really beautiful dear friend Eileen!

    .... and jelli plate will have to check that out... sounds very interesting wonder if you can still do it but not have jelli plate??

    I guess it would have something to do with the transition of paint to paper to get it cleanly..

    A great tag... and thanks for being an inspiration in 2012. May God bless you and keep you in 2013, Shaz in oz.x

  3. Happy New Year, Eileen. The background on your tag looks fascinating however, not sure what a jelli plate looks like? I'll have to investigate further.

  4. Ein wunderschönes farbenfrohes Tag.
    Ich bin wieder einmal total begeistert.

    Ich wünsche dir ein gutes, gesundes, und kreatives neues Jahr 2013

  5. Happy New Year Eileen! I'm looking forward to another great year full of inspiration. It amazes me what you come up with next and where you get your ideas from? Like the other comments, I'm now intrigued by this Gelli Plate, will need to investigate further hmmmmm! I feel I have had a great year! (Craft wise) but its only down to people like yourself, thank you!

    I love the tag! Great colours with a fabulous spring feel to it, after what seemed to be the wettest winter for ages. The background looks amazing. As usual an inspiring piece of art xxx

  6. Wow, yet another beautiful tag. I bet you could get some interesting patterns with Snowflakes teeth ;) xx

  7. Terrific vibrant tag here Eileen. Never heard of a Gellie Plate, but as usual - you're a trend setter and have done great things with it!

  10. Eileen, you are a mixed media genius! I´m all inspired now after looking at this tag. Great details. Love the stamping over text and the white leaves that you popped out. The detail work and colours on the flowers is pure eye candy as well... All the best for 2013! Can´t wait to see what you make :) I left a little video on my blog with a special thanks to you for 2012 ;)
