PanPastels and a Gelli Plate

Hi ho crafters
This Tag is my DT Sample for the PanPastels Challenge Blog
It was so quick, so easy and great fun to make.
Melissa, a crafty friend, gave me a Gelli Plate as a Christmas gift
It is FABULOUS to play with! 
The background of this Tag was created with white and pink metallic acrylic paints 
mixed with some (LOTS!) of  Magenta PanPastel colour.
The Gelli Plate was covered with the paint using a brayer.
I created the pattern by 'stroking' the paint with a rubber comb thingy! 
 Thin card or paper is then laid on the top of the plate, press down gently to take a 'print'.
 Some Lavinia Stamps to complete the Tag, along with a few Shapeabilities Butterflies.
ROCK 'n ROLL !
Pop over and enter the challenge, you could win a super prize of
a trial pack of PanPastels from our sponsor Your Creativity Store.
I'm sad to say that this is the last PanPastel project from me
for the PanPastels Challenge Design Team.
Thank you so much Berni, Pete, Kerry and the gang.
I've had a super fun time.... gonna miss it.

  7. Love that you've made your own background with the gelli plate. I'm going to have to source it in Australia as I haven't come across it here yet.

  10. Fabulous Eileen! Trying to figure out how you added the PP to the paint. Did you dig it out of the pan and mix it in the paint? Hugs, Yvonne

  12. Hi Ho Eileen, another eye catching tag, whatever this gelli plate is it makes some super designs. How come your leaving the pan pastels design team? Over the past few months you've encouraged a lot of people to use them and see how wonderful they blend to create gorgeous designs. It's sad that we won't be seeing your projects anymore. Dee x
