Hexagonal Gel Print Cards

Recently I took advantage of the nice weather (pre-wildfire smoke) and wandered around in my yard to get some leaves to use for gel printing. Leaves are probably my favorite texture to add to paint of ink to create botanical prints. So I used Distress Oxide inks and brayered them onto my hexagon gel plate, then added leaves that I’d collected. Some time later, I added stamped or die-cut sentiments and a few insects and sequins and made some lovely, simple cards.

Here is a closer look at a few of them.

I associate leaves with Fall cards, so I imagine I’ll be doing some more of this! Thanks for visiting today.
