I've read so much about Gelli plates lately I had to finally breakdown and get one. What a cool technique this is for making backgrounds. Messy messy messy but very cool. This is just a fairly simple one using only a texture tool. Looked like water to me sooooooooo..... Saw this little Koi die cut last week during the blog hop and went on a search for it. Love him too. Add the Lotus Blossoms from MFPa HC and I've got a card that turned out the way I saw it in my head. Two of the Lotus blossoms have a double layer popped up. I have a schedule posting of my Basic Backgrounds column on 8-13-13 showing how to use the Gelli Plate on Speedy TV.
