Artist Trading Card "Find the Beautiful"

I love making Gelli Prints, but I have a really hard time using the prints on projects. I end up with stacks and stacks just sitting there. So today, I challenged myself to actually use the Gelli prints I made.
I used the lighter color print for background. All I had to add was some darker colored stenciling and it was done!
My Instgram friend Debbie (@debbiekenn) suggested using the prints to make embellishments. Stamping on them like I did here, making flowers, or paper piecing. That got my mind racing with ideas!
I also like to only make a few prints at a time. This way, they don't stack up and become overwhelming.
How do you use your Gelli Prints?
