Texture Plate Printing

I’m over at the Topflight Stamps blog today with two tags I made using the gel press and a texture plate from Carabelle Studio.

I’m still relatively new at using the gel plate and this was my first time using a texture plate but it was so fun to play with the designs. I used the Carabelle Studio Texture Plate with the gel press.

I started out by taking some acrylic paint and putting it on the gel plate and using a brayer to move the paint around a little.  The I used the texture plate and placed it down on the gel plate. The texture these plates leave behind are so detailed and I love the look. For this tag I pressed the tag into the gel plate after I used the texture plate so the paint was darker.

For this tag, I used the texture plate and the paint I had on it to make the impression on the tag.

I love the look and textures these plates give to a tag or card. I’ll definitely be playing with them some more. Once the tags were dry, I used some Distress Oxide Sprays to give them some more color. I then stamped the images on the tag and colored them with some sharpies and white gel pen.

I stamped the sentiment in and traced a little white gel pen around it to help it stand out against my busy background.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
