  The gelli plate is really popular and I really like the results you can achieve with it. This is my second attempt playing with one! I love the new Sparrow image from Tara Caldwell. It worked perfectly for stamping onto the Gelli Plate and also for stamping with Stazon onto vellum.
"Let your Dreams" paired great with the birds!
