    I have wanted to try using a Gelli plate forever, but have not. Now I will, it looks super easy the way you do it and turned out so beautiful.

    Thank you! I laughed so hard at your comment of finding the block & not remembering even buying it. You made my day. Oh, and the card is beautiful too.

    Thank you Lisa for the inspiration! I too had gel plates buried in the archives that are now back on the desk.

    Great card Lisa, as always! Love the color and will try using the ink cube-water mix method. (Gina showed us some time ago) Glad you chose the yellow card base. Green would be good, but the yellow is perfect!!!
    As for the misty cleaning… try windex !! I had dark ink plus some very sticky mess on it from an old rubber stamp which must have gotten hot an melted and it all came off just using windex and a soft cloth. I always use it on my stove too ( and I love to cook) and it too gets sparkling clean every time. My misty (can’t live without it) looks like new again. “try it.. you like it !! I hope! LOL!!
    Looking forward to your next awesome video and stamp set . Thanks for sharing,

    Hi Lisa. First of all, I LOVE this card! The color and texture are WONDERFUL! I’ll have to get one of those Gelli plates!
    Also, try the Magic Eraser to clean your Misti. It worked great on mine!
    Thank you for sharing your talent with everyone!

    Love love love your card. I have been using a gel plate and have a tiny one like that I’ve never used! And believe it or not got a bag of gouache paint tubes at the thrift store the other day and didn’t know what to do with it. I also ended up getting the elegant aster card set so I’m thinking I’m going to have to do this. Thanks for the inspiration!!
