Gelli Arts® + Liquitex® – Mixed Media Postcards & Envelopes by Sara Ferret

Sara here! Today, I’m sharing with you how I created fun mixed media postcards with envelopes using Gelli Arts® and Liquitex® products.

Here is how these came to life:



I started playing with the 6×6″ Gelli® Printing Plate, stencils and Liquitex® paints. I created some layers using a blank postcard and matching size envelopes to print on. I also used some Art Foamies stamps on the Gelli® Printing Plate to create different impressions.

Since the size of the postcards and the envelopes are smaller than the 6×6″ Gelli Arts® Printing Plate, I placed white A4 cardstock on top of the postcards and envelopes to use as a protective layer for my hands when printing. Don’t throw this paper away, because we will use at the end!

When we have some postcards and envelopes printed, I organize my stash and pair up the matching ones.

I have chosen two pairs of postcards and envelopes. I stitched one of the postcards with my sewing machine.

 

I stamped the Cat Angel Stamp with black ink on that cardstock I used to protect my hands. And then I cut that out, using 3D foam squares to glue the cat in the postcard.

It’s super easy to do! I hope you try it! Tag us on social media if you try this project with @sara_ferret @gelliarts and #gelliarts

Have fun!!

  4. Isn’t it addicting to sit for hours making prints with the gelli plate!?? I have two and I love the sense of accomplishment they give me as a newer creative!
