Hey there! I am back to share a couple of cards that I created using the new Journey Gel Press and Fluttering Hearts Gel Impressions Plate. Last June, I had the chance to be in one of the Gel Press workshops that took place at the FSJ Convention as an spectator. One of the things that I liked the most about it, was the versatility. There is no wrong way whatsoever while using the press. The paper literally gets transformed into beautiful unique backgrounds that you can use for your cards, scrapbooking, etc. It is so much fun!
Last week, Richard did some videos featuring the regular flat press and the heart one as well. You can see some of these videos by clicking >>>HERE<<<
I used the regular Gel Press to create a background over a Whip Cream panel inking the surface directly with my ink pad. Then, I placed the panel over it to pick up the ink. The result was an uneven subtle background. Quick and easy.
After that, I inked the Hearts Gel Press with a darker color and I placed the Whip Cream Panel on top of the Gel Press.
Next, and just to give the hearts a different look I randomly inked the hearts only using the side of the ink pad. Then, I place the cardstock panel over my table, and flipped over the Heart Gel Press and carefully placed it onto the panel trying to match the hearts below. I repeated this twice.
Since I was experimenting with this background, I also stamped the Vintage Notes background on top of my Gel Press impressions. I stamped a sentiment and I finished my card with Journey Glaze, Journey tape and sequins.
For my second card, I used the the Journey Gel Press and the Fluttering Hearts Gel Impressions Plate as well, but this time I did not create that many layers of ink, but at the end I was very pleased with the results. Take a look…
If you like to experiment and play with different mediums, I highly recommend you to try the Journey Gel Press. It is so much fun to create with it.
