Halloween Card With The 3×5″ Gelli Arts® Plate by Kirsten Varga

Hi there! Kirsten here. 

At a recent trip to the home improvement store I noticed that there were a variety of sponges available and they each
had an interesting texture. And since Halloween is right around the corner
(yay!), I immediately thought those textures could create a monoprint that looks
like a spooky night sky. I bought four different sponges and headed home with a
plan in mind.

Sometimes monoprinting is full of multiple layers and other
times it’s just one. My goal was to make a background for my haunted house
themed card and, in this case, limit my texture tools to just sponges. I
kept the process simple and quick, which is great if I want to make multiples
of a card.

Check out the following video to see how I created this
Halloween card. You’ll see prints from each sponge and which one I chose to
make the finished card with.

Thanks for watching!
