Monoprinting with Gel Press

Hello!
As you might know, I love to use my gel plates and make oodles of monoprints! The trick for me is then getting them on a card! I love to just look at them. This one was made with a 3 x 5 Gel Press Plate -- my favorite new size! It's a little less mess, because of the smaller base, and is perfect when you don't want the entire background of your project covered.

I thought this stencil looked industrial enough to pair with this little robot from Printworks (a Hobby Lobby 75% off fabulous find!). I used orange acrylic paint for the first generation print (and only one stencil pattern), but you can see where it picked up some pink from a previous print. I love that!

The robot was stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink and colored with Copics. This is a thank you card. The inside says "A million thanks" which I thought fit with the stencil pattern as well.

Happy Friday!
