DIY Gel Press Monoprints 3 Layer Technique Tutorial

Our July Scraps of Elegance Creativity Add On featured a Gel Press reusable gel printing plate, brayer, and 3 colors of Momenta Art C stencil paint, and Tracey has done a wonderful technique tutorial based on the items in this add on. Tracey will show how easy it is to create an amazing 3 layer background for your handmade cards, tags, atc's, or whatever else you may want to use it on.  Here's what Tracey used hers for - a gorgeous mixed media wedding card and gift tag set:
