More birds and....

....a cool use of your Gelli Plate. Here's another of my samples for today's launch of the bird stamps by Sheena Douglass.
So background for this was just distress ink and a bit of faux bleaching and then I simply stamped, coloured and cut out elements from the new bird stamps and from the Always Floral set.  

However the bird on the stamp sheet faces right and I wanted another one to face in the opposite direction. Now I know you can use a brayer to get a reverse image but my gelli plate was sitting on the side so I thought I'd use that.  Firstly I inked up my stamp with Memento and stamped it onto my gelli plate.....
Then I laid on a piece of card and pressed firmly and then peeled off the card and hey presto I had my reversed image......

As you can see from the picture below there is a slight difference in quality of line but not enough to be worried about and by the time its all coloured you can't really tell the difference at all. 
See you again soon,
