The color you see is the color you get!

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm sharing some atc's I made. As you know, I like to experiment to see how CI paints work in different situations. This time I pulled out my Gelli Arts plate to monoprint my backgrounds. I knew that regular acrylics made great backgrounds, but I wanted to see if CI paints worked on the Gelli plate and if they kept their shimmer. Well, the answer to both questions is definitely YES. I tried different colors (rustic red, plum, sage, citrus, lavender, and buttercup) alone and in combination. After coloring the backgrounds, I went over them with distress stains. I just love how they turned out. The shimmer makes for a gorgeous background. With a few exceptions, all of the stamps, embellishments, and die cuts, and word stickers are from one of Tim Holtz's lines. The cat image is from Stampa Rosa and the sentiment is from Club Scrap. The "Be Happy" sentiment is from a Spellbinders die.
