making use of a Gelli plate clean up

Hi everyone
Hope you are all having a good week. I been having a play with some gelli print backgrounds. The one I have used is a print that I made just to clean up the residue of paint left over on my gelli plate. It's very patchy as there wasn't much paint left on the plate but I like the randomness of it.

The birds were created using Tim Holtz alterations strip die 'Birds in Flight' that I cut out to use as a stencil.
I have then added stamping using Carabelle and Art journey stamps
I nearly threw this print away and now I'm glad I didn't, Thank goodness we crafters are hoarders!!
Thanks for stopping by
