Background week - Gio

A couple of cards from Gio today, including one very original fan one I particularly love. Wouldn't you like receiving a card like this? With those bright colours, it would sure put a smile on your face no matter what.
Gio used her GelliArt plate to make her backgrounds along with the PaperArtsy paints and a selection of masks. 

I put small amounts of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints on the Gel Printing plate 6x6", and I spread them with the brayer. 

I lay a mask on the GelliArt plate and I put a piece of white cardstock face down pressing the paper a little bit. 
I repeated five times with different colours and masks. I cut the 5 cardstocks to size  to create a fan. Using several masks, stencils and Distress ink pads I added some details. I stamped using IndigoBlu stamps: Circle dot background and Ranger Archival Ink pad: Jet Black. 
Using a black pen I added the sentiment, using Tando Masks - Andy Skinner: 6x6 Have Your Say. 
I assembled the fan with a large brad.

And I also made C&S card with leftovers
I cut some 3x3 cm squares from the Gelli printed cardstock leftovers
I glued them to a piece of white cardstock folded in half. 
I added the chevron using Distress ink pads and Tando Masks - Andy Skinner: 12x3 Burning rubber. 
I added the sentiment from the CI-256 - Handy sentiments using Ranger Archival Ink pad: Jet Black.

See you tomorrow
