Posts Tagged ‘gel plate’

I made this for the final Dare to Get Dirty challenge for 2019 at Splitcoaststampers. Lydia shared a video HERE for an easy technique using a gel plate, acrylic paint & a small object. (You may have to be a Fan Club Member to view the forum. Click the blue link to find out how.) It looked interesting & easy so I gave it a try.

I ended up doing 2 pressings of the gel print. The first time, I put neon yellow & neon orange paint onto my gel plate, pressed & slid the object (it happened to be an empty plastic ring from my ATG gun) then pressed the white card onto to it & rubbed. It didn’t look quite dramatic enough, so I repeated the process using black paint & pressed it to the same piece of card. I like it, but it’s awfully busy. I thought the colors would fit a Halloween card so I die cut all the pieces & arranged them as you see. I used a few fluorescent Copics to add color to the roof & windows & added the die cut ground out of neon orange card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC663) is a fun, colorful site..mostly nail polish, but it’s very colorful nail polish! I was mostly influenced by THIS picture & THIS picture.

After reading about this technique last week in the Dare to Get Dirty challenges, it led me to a video HERE. I’m not sure of the name of this technique, so I’ll go w/ what it’s called on the video..Pop Art Prints or Magazine Resist. The funny thing is, even though I watched the video several times, I still did it wrong. Maybe that’s why I had so many fails. But this is one of the few that actually worked. I had to go out and buy a magazine because all of my magazines were put in the recycle bin when we moved. I found this Harper’s Bazaar & the pages looked really shiny so I bought it. (Yeah, I know a thrift shop would have been great but there isn’t one around here.)

I used a brayer to spread a thin layer of black acrylic paint onto my Gel plate, placed the magazine picture on top, pressed it down all over, then pulled the page off.  I pressed a plain white piece of card stock on top of the Gel plate, rubbed it firmly, then lifted it. Then I added some thin layers of paint in different colors. What I should have done, was dry the black print on the gel plate & spread the thin layers of color on top of it before putting the card stock on top & lifting the print. Oh well. I’m just happy it worked! The greeting was heat embossed directly on the print.

Here’s a look at the inside.

This card is a little departure from the usual for me. And getting here was a lot of trial & even more error. After reading about this technique last week, it led me to a video HERE. I’m not sure of the name of this technique, so I’ll go w/ what it’s called on the video..Pop Art Prints or Magazine Resist. The funny thing is, even though I watched the video several times, I still did it wrong. Maybe that’s why I had so many fails. But this is one of the few that actually worked. When we moved before Christmas, I put all my magazines in the recycle bin so all I had to work with was a recent Tommy Bahama catalog. The pages weren’t very shiny so I was surprised it worked as well as it did.
Anyway, I used a brayer to spread a thin layer of black acrylic paint onto my Gel plate, placed the sunglasses magazine picture on top, pressed it down all over, then pulled the page off.  I pressed a plain white piece of card stock on top of the Gel plate, rubbed it firmly, then lifted it. Then I added some thin layers of paint in different colors. What I should have done, was dry the black print on the gel plate & spread the thin layers of color on top of it before putting the card stock on top & lifting the print. Oh well. I’m just happy it worked! I added a couple of narrow layers behind it & heat embossed the greeting directly on the print.

Here’s a look at the inside.
