Gelli Print ATC

The challenge from Fun with ATCs this time is 'Clean and Sample', I cut an ATC from a gelatin monoprint.  No embellishments, no matting and layering, no more inks or stamping - Clean and Simple.

Clean and Simple ATC

Red, yellow and blue acrylic paint was applied to the centre of the Gelli plate and the colours were blended using a large brayer.  A circle mask was placed on the plate over the paint, a piece of coated card was placed over the top, burnished, then removed.

The first print
The mask was then removed and another print was taken directly from the Gelli plate, this print was used for the card.

I love the interesting details you get in the circles where the mask is lifted and every print is different.
