Bought a lot of hemp to do this technique I saw on the Gelli Plate blog and newsletter - but I'm sure it will keep for a long time :)
Ink the plate with acrylics (using Golden Open Acrylics). Lay down the string that's been pulled and made fuzzy by running a scissor over it (like making a ribbon swirl). Put that in any way on the inked plate and then put on the card (or paper). Easy!
(On the green card at the bottom, I put the string on before putting on more acrylic paint trying to get a ghost print but it didn't work so took the string off, reinked the gelli plate and got a faint line, not a true resist.)
Using a white gift bag (no design, just white), I pulled a print onto one side of it - folded flat. I then glued on the edges from some decorative papers I cut down to fit.
I will definitely do this again = makes a plain gift bag really pretty and one-of-a-kind.
