Gel Press Blog Hop with DCC

Hello! This month over at Designer Crafts Connection we were sponsored by Gel Press.  I had lots of fun and made tons of printed images while trying to figure out what to create but finally decided on making a Halloween background piece for a mixed media card.  

Gel Press plates are not “gelatin”- they're way better! You have all the benefits of ‘gelatin’ printing - with no downsides! Gel Press is super durable and reusable because unlike ‘homemade’ gel- you can store your Gel Press plate at room temperature. It’s so easy to clean – it’s printmaking without the mess! Press your paper on the gel plate- lift the print and Voila! Creating a masterpiece is easy.

Watch my video below to see how I created the Harlequin background on my card.
