Raindow Gelli print backgrounds for mixed media cards - Polkadoodles stamps

It's September printing Challenge time over at Gelli Arts & the prompts were linked to the letters of the alphabet. One of the letters I chose was "V" with a theme of "V for vertical". As I knew what stamps I wanted to use, it meant I also had my colour ideas - rainbow. After printing my backgrounds, I turned them in to quick, pretty mixed media style cards using Polkadoodles Weirdre stamp collection. YouTube video, product links & discount code are below.

Quick Gelli print ideas using oxide inks to create Halloween inspired backgrounds

I'm on a mission or should I say, am challenging myself, that when I create any Gelli printed backgrounds, I try and use them as soon as possible rather than just storing them away for another day. I'm also determined to dust off my older stamp sets too & show them some crafty love. With this in mind, I thought it would be fun to create some Halloween projects with my printed backgrounds ... Further how, whys & photos are below plus a link to my YouTube video showing the process from start to finish.
  'm slowly going through all my memory sticks & folders on hard drives called either "photos to edit" or "phone dump" and have been sorting them. I didn't realise how many I had & also how many projects I hadn't shared! Today I'm sharing four projects made with the Tonic Studios Centre Piece Sentiments die sets. These are large sentiments that create a commanding statement on your cards.
