flower power

Good Morning all I can't believe we are at the beginning of the month and a new challenge for you to take part in - Flower Power.I still cannot get my head around the fact that we have been doing this blog for a year - where did that go then?

We had some great entries again last month and such a lot too- the standard is outstanding and some of you come up with the most amazing ideas.  So come on have a go there is £50 worth of vouchers for the winner who is picked at random so everyone has an equal chance of winning - and remember you gotta be in it to win it!

Any way here's my inspirational idea for this months theme.

Now I have to be honest here - I did these some time ago and I have lost the scrap of paper where I scribble down what I did  but I do know that I did the backgrounds on the gelli plate 
I think the one on the right started off as blue on the plate and then I took some off using crumpled paper, took a print, then repeated the process with some brown.  I cleaned off the plate and using a some blue, white and silver in random patches, added the stencil and pulled a print.

The one on the right was pulled with what was left on the plate from the first one and forms the base behind the tag of the first and the background for the second tag.  I got some of the tall thin flowers and the verse n the recent members sale and stamped over the top with coffee archival on the left and embossing with silver on the right.  I stamped the snow drop out again on paper and coloured with pencils, cut out and overlayed on the tag and on the right I coloured with pencils directly on to the tag
