Cork celebration

We were so chuffed at reading our daughter’s school achievements yesterday that I bought her her own bottle of bubbly. There’s a special celebration Schloer which was wrapped in gold and was corked. She opened the bottle and it made a loud pop noise as the cork came out! She giggled and handed me the cork for my printing!

The cork pressed into the gelli then onto paper

The paint applied to the gelli with cork impressions

A bit of both!

The cork was great as it’s shaped well to grip and creates fun textures – I now have some backing papers ready for embellishing 🙂
