Gelli Plate Prints with Packing Tape

All last year I put off getting a gelli plate thinking, pfft, I can do that with __________ fill in the blank! I tried it with everything and yes, I was able to get prints.  After Christmas I put some gift card $$ to good use and bought one. Geesh, all I can say is I don't know why I waited so long! 
Today I had a play at making some prints on clear packing tape after watching this amazing video by Gelli Arts

And looks at my results!!! 

I cannot wait to get these collaged onto some projects! They are so beautiful and shimmery in real life! 
I'm also playing along in Carolyn's Gelli Party! Head over and check it out!

I added some of these strips to a canvas and ended up with a very happy accident. You check out that vid  here.

Thanks for stopping by =0)
