Treats on Tuesday at Magenta

Hi everyone, I'm over at Magenta with a few more mono print backgrounds and this great dandelion stamp. Come on over and check them out. 
I created the two backgrounds during my session at our Craft Retreat 2019 in May. In one of my sessions I showed everyone how to use Distress and Distress Oxide inks, stamps and stencils on a gelli plate.

Here are the stamps and stencils used

  4. Beautiful cards. You do gelli plate prints so well... I need a lot more practice. xx

  5. You definitely are the queen of backgrounds! My eye wanders to your backgrounds every time you post. Love reading how you did them too. Love how you used the dandelion stamp in white as well as the second card over the script background. Now I'm popping over to Magenta!

  6. I just love what you have created Christine...looks amazing and the green is so soothing.
    hope you have a great wknd mf...I'm off to the Lake with one of my besties for a few days. I really need to decompress after working so much for the last 8 months and I find that hard to do when I'm at home.
    Have a great wknd.
