Distress Inkpads, Gelli Plate and Stencils!

A technique that I learned from the UK's Barbara Gray is quick and easy --  

First, you ink a Gelli Plate with one or more inverted Distress Inkpads.  Distress Ink appears to be faint on the Gelli Plate, but despite this, the prints will come out beautifully.
 
Today's post uses these stencils --

Silhouette of a Wildflower Bouquet

Quilted Flower Garden

Palm Fronds Silhouette Small

Palm Fronds Silhouette Mini

Fern Fronds Silhouette


-- and the first three images below are 6"X6" greeting cards.


Stencil used above and below:  Silhouette of a Wildflower Bouquet


Stencil used above:  Quilted Flower Garden

Stencils used above:  Quilted Flower Garden, Fern Fronds Silhouette and Palm Fronds Silhouette Mini.  The solid purple background was created with an inverted Distress Inkpad applied directly to the paper.
Above:  a collage using papers printed with the stencils Fern Fronds Silhouette and Palm Fronds Silhouette Mini -- and papers stamped with a Flip-Flop rubber stamp, created with my stencil Marbles 6.
