Gelli good printing!

Still playing around with my Gelliarts Gelli plate. I bought some inexpensive doilies from a Dollar shop to use as masks and stencils. One of them was a light lacy thread one not plastic. But I thought it would be good as a stencil.

When I used it over the painted Gelli plate and tried to pull a print,  nothing came through the weave. The doily seemed to absorb the paint.  I was disappointed that it didn't work. There didn't look like there was much paint left on the plate, but I pulled a print to pick up what was left.

This was the fantastic result I got! The colour paint I used was Paynes Grey. When you look closely it looks like fabric, not a print on paper!
