Flower print on reversed ringlets

I always have some flowers in my vase, and when they begin to wither I feel pity for them, I’d like to keep them forever, but before I say good-bye to them I make a print on my gelli-arts monotype printing plate so I can keep an image at least. This one was made on top of a reversed ringlets print.

Flowers on reversed ringlets

Note: the reversed ringlets print was made earlier, it was completely dry, so I could keep the yellow layer bright and separated, additionally the yellow layer is heavy body acrylics that I mixed with retarder gel instead of fluid. Print made on rice paper.
