Shopping Our Stash -Fantastic Beasts

Hello, Ya'll!
Here at Shopping Our Stash, we are on the lookout for 
Fantastic Beasts: Unicorns, Dragons, Monsters...Et al!
This is Ms. London's SketchI
 I knew I had to craft a card using this fabulous Unicorn sketch by Ms. Tanya London.  Since I was playing around with my new gelli plate (made with my own crafty little hands) I decided to use one of my gelli prints as the background paper.
I chose a blue monochrome palette with gold and silver highlights.
I used a section of my gelli print to complement my sentiment!
I used Smooch™ Frost Glitz and Gold Lame on the horn.  (Unfortunately, the Frost does not photograph well.)
This background sheet is actually the paper I used to "roll off" paint from my brayer !
Creating gelli prints is a fabulous way to utilize paper scraps. Nothing is wasted and you can use any type paper to create your designs.

 Everything used in completing this DT piece is over 5 years old, except the paint which is only 3 years old.  And, of course, my Gelli Plate which I made last week!


  1. oooooh you are using your Gelli prints already!!! and using them magnificently, as well! YOWZA, missus... this is an incredibly beautiful card, every single detail is the PERFECT thing for that job!!! <3 <3 <3

    1. Thanks, Lauren! The Hubster finds my addition to Gelli printing highly amusing. I love this sketch and wanted to leave it mostly untouched!

  2. I'm equally loving that Gelli print background, and that gorgeous image! Wow! Such a beautiful card!

  3. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your background paper!!!

  4. Ohhhhhhh Chana this is sooooo very pretty!!
    I have no idea what a gelli print is, probably better that I don't - I have enough stuff already lol
    Your unicorn and gorgeous backgrounds....just lovely!!

  5. Well Chana, I also never heard of Gelli Prints but, whatever they are, you most definitely created something gorgeous with them.
    That background is amazing and perfect for your beautiful Unicorn image.
    Awesome card!!

  6. I've been staying at this on the SOS HQ page and just loving it... then reading about your gelli-printing... you are one inspiring chick! I've of a few recipes... I'll bug you behind the scenes for details. This card is so pleasing to the eye. I love the style and colors, and the panel used to roll-off on is a magnificent bi-product!

  7. Chana this is AWESOME love the colour. I was reading the other day about making a gelli plate kudos to you for making one. That unicorn is fabulous.

  8. A really magical card in a lovely colour combo.
