Background was created using Silk Acrylic paints from ColourArte and my gelli plate....I won't be using them again with the gelli plate as I've had better results with other paints. I then ran the ARTplorations Holly Background stencil through the GC and inked with a green DI, I then carefully inked the berries with red DI. Sentiments are from STAMPlorations Vignette: Christmas Block set and were stamped onto tissue before being applied with gel medium. Ribbon from my stash.
