What a fun way to begin another week! A new to me: TLC, the frame in a frame (eclipse). Thanks Sabrina, for your two inspiring samples. And to Chrissy, I really did find a web page and read 40 of the best Knock Knock jokes, but in the end, I had to stick with your Orange who...
My dear friend and close by tessaduck invited me down to spend the afternoon playing with paper, ink, the Gelli plate, and techniques in her studio. And did we play! With stencils, TH do's, and all the mess the spritzer created on those panels. We pulled first, second, and third generation prints. When we were finished, we decided to take turns creating from a set of warm colors I had cooked up. And actually Brenda has hers featured as the CAS Challenge Favorite for last week. Have a look CAS503 sweet by tessaduck.
I loved my print pulled off the Gelli Plate with the bright contrast of colors. But I could only bear to use a tiny bit. Just enough to have room to cut the lovely graceful Grateful out of the print. I cut 4 additional layers from white cs for give it the dimension. And the Knock knock ORANGE wood background.
Thanks for your comments...

Ha, I am the same with my gel prints. I make one I love and then I don't want to use it; it was a real effort to make myself use my favourite one from my last session on my foxy IC card. I'm glad to know I'm not alone. The colours are perfect with that warm woody background ( our childhood kitchen table that my dad made, and then remade smaller for their last home, was just that colour) and the extra eclipsed sentiment is a wonderful detail.
