Altered gelli print index card

geisha on a field of flowers

Hey Everyone! Good Monday to you. Lori here with you today I wanted to share this altered gelli print index card I created.

To create this altered gelli print index card I printed from my computer the Japanese proverb “No road is too long in the company of a friend”. I made sure it was printed to the far left and bottom of the gelli print. The printer I used is a laser printer so The ink will not smear.

After cutting out the appropriate size rectangle of 3X5 inch so it would fit on an index card I stamped Geisha on a field of flowers with Fun Stampers Journey black ink using a stamping tool. I stamped it to the far right of the 3X5 inch gelli plate rectangle print. The ink I used to stamp the Geisha is an ink that is permanent and wont smear if you heat set it and that’s what I did, I used a heat tool to set the ink since the gelli print was a chalky type of surface and stamping on that type of surface can cause an ink not to set/dry properly.

With a die in the shape of bamboo branches I die cut seven bamboo branches which I then glued in a scattered pattern in the upper left corner of the stamped gelli plate rectangle.

I used a small punch to punch out three swirls from gold foiled card stock. I glued those three swirls in the middle of the stamped gelli plate rectangle.

With a strong adhesive I glued the stamped gelli plate rectangle onto a 3X5 index card making sure the lines of the index card faced outward.

My altered index card is completed and I can use the lines as a guide on the back to add whatever info I want. To see a video tutorial of this altered index card click HERE.

Thanks for stopping by have a great week!

    I love the look of the geisha image stamped directly on the gelli print. And the contrast added by the bamboo, and more subtly by the swirls, seems so in keeping with the clean, minimalist Japanese style.
