I haven't done the IC is a very long time. While browsing the West Elm site I came across this pillow and knew I had to give it a try.....details....
I have recently learned that you can use your ink pads on the gelli plate with wonderful results. Plus you don't have to hurry like you do with acrylic paints.
So I pulled out my little square gelli pad, brayered it with sail boat blue ink, laid down strips of paper and pulled a print. Brayered on the denim, removed the first strips but added larger ones then pulled another print over the first one. Wal-la! Sort of looks like the pillow. Yay!
On white cs, I stamped the button several times. Cut them out, punched out the holes of the button, versa marked one of them and clear ep'd it. Then I
glued them altogether adding the ribbon and making a bow. Set aside.
Sponged the edges of my panel then paper pierce the edges and connected the holes with a pen to look like faux stitching.
Put this panel on a white card popping up the button. Done.
Nothing fancy going on here, but had fun making this card and to me that is what it is all about. Have a great rest of the weekend everyone.....TFL :0)

It VERY much looks like the pillow, Cathy! Well done! So neat to find more uses for your gelli plate! Love that you added the cute button and bow too! Love the faux stitching along the edges, very nice detail!!!
