Gel Printing Backgrounds

Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl with you today and I’m sharing how I made backgrounds using the Gel Printing Plate.

I’ve created a video since it is far better to show you, than to try and explain. I set out to make one card, but ended up with four cards made using the Gel Plate backgrounds.

The gel plate is so much fun to use, and you will get unique designs every time. No two pulls will ever be the same.

I have listed all the items below that I used for the final cards as well as the other products I used. In addition I have also itemised the colours of the Alcohol Markers used for the Framed Poppies Outline Stamp.
