Mixed media art... Gelli Plate & Silhouette

Hello friends,

I've got something different to share with you all today.  I signed up for this great class and here are my first two cards......

I had such fun making them.  I started with two normal playing cards, out of a pack of 52.  Coated them with Gesso to make a tooth on them, so I could add any medium from then on.  I decided to get out my Gelli Plate, which has been in the back of a deep cupboard since it's first outing.  I used a sheet of old music paper for the "Try" background, which I laid on top of the paint and for the "Begin" background, I used a sheet of old map, which you actually can't see, but there you go, it's under all that paint!

I cut the words out with my Silhouette Cameo and the shape of the heart is one I adapted from one I got with some of the inspiration provided in the class.

I hope you like my new style......I wonder if I can keep it up all year and do a card a week?

Happy crafting.
