Paperartsy Transparent Challenge

Hi ya, just quickly popping on to show you a card I did for the Paperartsy Challenge which is Transparent and finishes in 40mins.  I decided to play with my gelli plate and gel medium to make a painted skin which is transparent in places.  It's my first time doing it on the Gelli Plate but it was so much fun.  I have also done a step by step showing the layers I did.  All of the products I used are as always at the bottom of the post :-)
Sorry I had a delay in pictures as my computer when a bit wonky.  All done now lol.
I would also like to enter the following challenge -
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Stencil it

I love the colours, they are my favourite PA paints.  I have back ups all
the time lol.

Step by Step

First I used the Tangerine Twist and the stencil on my gelli plate and let dry.

Next was Carribean through the next stencil and again let dry.

Another one using the pink and let dry.

Next I used some more of the yellow on the blue but using PS001 stencil not the one shown.  Then I added some circles using the top and black.

I stamped with the pink paint and then added some marker dots.

Next acrylic ink splattered.

When everything is dry I added the medium thickly and left over night.

This is how it look the next morning.

As you can see if you don't add the gelli plate full of paint you get areas of transparency.

I stamped the sentiment and added the colours using bubble wrap.

Wow that took over an hour to do, I can't believe it took so long.  Ended up restarting my computer lol.  Anyway it's done, hope your enjoyed it.  Thank you so much for being patience and taking the time to visit.

Happy Art :-)

Are you telling me that you can just lift the transparency off the gelli plate? Doesn't it stick to it?
How cool is that!
Congrats on being in the spotlight at SSS!
