Gelli play with distress inks
I was going to be really good this week and get all caught up with work so I could have some time to craft this week end. This lasted until Monday afternoon by which time I had got so fed up of picking up a job to finish only to find paperwork missing or queries no one had got back to me about that I called it a day. Lisa had sent me a link via face book to watch a you tube video

Well that was it, the gelli plate had to come, I had to have a go. Just a couple of minor set backs – no Adirondack ink pads, no Versa fine ink pads and no Lavinia zentangle stamps, Not a problem I have a few of the Distress inks so I would just use them instead, ( I don’t recommend metallic pigment inks though, yes I had to try didn’t I) My daughter, Jenna is addicted to zentangle so I drew a couple of toadstool shapes to use as masks and just played with the inks. The results weren’t quite as vibrant or as clear as Tracey’s but I think the distress inks because they are quite a wet ink give their own effect which I quite liked. As you can see the masks have left nice white shapes when the prints were taken
I then gave them to Jenna to work her magic, I think we work rather well together
I felt a lot better after that, can’t think of a better way to get over a bad day at the office, lol.
