Leaf .....

Made a card using a Gelli plate print of a real leaf found on a walk in a park recently .... for sale in my Etsy Shop .....

I made the background with grey and mustard acrylic paints applied with the brayer. I then applied a layer of brick red acrylic paint and placed the leaf - vein side down and placed a piece of paper over this removing all paint except that which was under the leaf. The leaf was removed carefully and the original background placed on the plate to pull the final print.

I mounted the trimmed print on white card , matted this on mustard and gold cards to form a frame and heat embossed the sentiment with red embossing powder on more mustard card. this was matted on gold card and then on foam pads as shown.

The finished front was then applied to a white card blank .......
