Another holiday gift tag!

This tag will be one of the projects at the Holiday Tag workshop hosted by Hive in Gastonia, NC.  December 6th! This tag started with a 3X5 index card that I drew a black line drawing of a holly leaf and berries.  I laid the drawing under the gelli plate so that I could see the design through it.  I used a small paint brush to do a light colored leaf on the gelli plate, then printed.  The next print was a swoosh of another green through the center of the leaf and the third layer was a dark green outline and vein.  Two layers of reds for berries.  Each tag was pulled six times.  Black pen outlining.

More examples of this technique...
