Love and Romance

Welcome to February, the month of romance.  Will your Valentine be bringing you chocolates and flowers this February 14th?  Or will your day be celebrated in a different way this year?  Mine, who knows...


In my January workshop, my ladies and gent were working with the gelli plate and of course the love and romance theme, so I thought I would use one of the projects as my inspirational card for the new challenge over at the Clarity Challenge blog. 

Stencil - hearts and leaves (7"x7")
Mask - moon mask
Gelli plate (6"x6")
Adirondack ink - red pepper, stonewashed, denim
Archival ink - black
Acrylic paint - crimson

If you've not used the gelli plate before, don't be scared to get it out of the packaging and have a play. What have you got to lose?  Some pieces of copy paper and some ink.  You may surprise yourself with the results once you start playing.  Don't try to run before you can walk though, just stick to one stencil and perfect the art before introducing more stencils.

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx


  1. Beautiful Saz, think I will have to try this with the gelli plate, Love the colours and the little scenes. I would'nt trust myself to write inside the hearts, its very effective.

  2. Great inspiration Sazzle....and the Little scenes work so well....I bet all the crafters loved the workshop...
