Gelli Arts® Valentine’s Cards with the Printmaking Starter Kit by Marsha Valk

Hi there! It’s Marsha here today sharing Valentine’s cards and tags!

Plus- read to the end to learn how you can enter to win our Valentine’s Day giveaway!

The Gelli Arts® Printmaking Starter Kit won the Creative Impulse Award for Creative Kit of 2020 at Creativeworld in Frankfurt.

It’s one of three new kits we offer that include everything you need to create a fun gel printing project.

Each one comes with full instructions, so they make great starter kits for anyone new to gel printing.

The Printmaking Starter Kit has full instructions to gel print on the tags included in the kit. However, the tags can also act as a super cool texture tool!

Watch me create a bunch of Valentine’s cards with the contents of The Printmaking Starter Kit, and i’ll show you exactly what I mean!

I chose to work with a Valentine’s themed colour palette instead of using the paints included in the Kit.

The paint in the kit is more than enough to gel print tags as well as notecards though, and i’m saving it for another project!

Parchment paper is a thin translucent paper that you can use to blot excess paint from your Gelli® plate.

I like to use it to cut temporary stencils and masks. It’s also perfect collage material, so don’t just throw it away: use it to gel print on, and then paste it onto your artworks!

Please share what you’ve made with the Printmaker Starting Kit on Instagram using #gelliarts and @GelliArts – we love seeing your creations!

Happy printing!
