Your gelli print makes for a beautiful start to your layered background, Christine. You are so talented in layering your elements to create the most amazing backgrounds. Having everything done in tones of soft green really makes it a beautiful cohesive design. The poppy is gorgeous and such a contrast. Great work my friend! xx

This is fantastic Christine and I love the green background with the mix of stamps and stencils and the beautiful red flower is so pretty over the top. Such an elegant card. x

I love the green background and how the poppy "pops" on the card design.

Another wonderful gelli plate print. You always layer your backgrounds so beautifully. The poppy truly “pops” against it.

Susan said...

Beautiful - heading over to Magenta for the details.

Wow! That is one, very impressive background! It looks like designer paper and hard to believe it was a stamped gelli print. My gelli prints are usually too heavy with paint to stamp on. You never fail to impress me, Christine. This is just amazing!

I love the grungy look of the background, Christine! The combination of gelli print and stamping in the beautiful shade of green is fantastic and I love the pop of the bright red Icelandic poppy! I'm sure Anne adored the card!

Stunning background. Like paper that's 100 years old and found treasure in an attic. I love how beautifully the intense red of the flower contrasts with the green background.
