I pressed the stamped cardstock face down to the Gelli Plate. If the mask is removed you are left with a clean image ready to color. But I kept adding layers of paint to the background.

Here's another print I made before. Notice that each print will result different every single time, since the process is manual. That is part of the magic of the Gelli Plate.

I wrapped the frame with red ribbon and then mounted the oval image, aligning it with the frame perfectly. I tied a bow, added a little vynil gem sticker and adhered it all to a card base.
