Creating Gel Press and Funky Fossil Backgrounds

Last night before tea, I decided to make a few backgrounds, using the gel press and stencils. 

I decided to use acrylic paint, brayered to a thin layer on the gel plate.  I then lay the stencil over the top, applying slight pressure all over.  Removed the stencil and brayered a small amount of white acrylic paint over the top and then took the impression.  Every one is different, even when using the same colour paints.  I love the final reveal and always find myself ooohing and aaahhhing over them.

For the top image I used the Funky Fossil "Lots of pips" stencil.

For the lower photo with the circles I used the Funky Fossil "In the groove" stencil.
