A Stencil, A Gelli Plate, and a Cotton Swab

A stencil and a Gelli Plate can make magic together.  The stencil is a place to start and then you can make it do even more with a very expensive tool.  An exclusive tool that is hard to find.  Okay, not expensive or exclusive- it's a cotton swab!  All the details are in the  video!

You can watch this video on YouTube here.

Here's what Terri Stegmiller's Curvy Stems looks like on the Gelli Plate.  

Here's what the same stencil looks like with that fancy tool, the cotton swab!

Want some more ideas with stencils and a Gelli Plate?  Stop on over to iCreateFlix where I am playing with one of Mary Beth's stencils and the Gelli Plate to make this tag and more!  

Looking for more ideas for the Gelli Plate?  My Gelli Printing Workshop has over 7 hours of video using all sorts of things on the Gelli Plate, including plenty of stencil techniques!    

Be sure to stop back on Monday for a wonderful guest post!
