I had FUN with this one using an older Gina K stencil (Snowflake Mandala) and NOT making it a Christmas card. Take a look...
Rather than the blues and turquoises I usually use with this stencil, I blended rainbow inks (Gina K inks) on an angle starting at the top left through the stencil. Leaving the stencil in place, I said a quick prayer that my Glass Bead Gel would still be good (it was getting a bit stiff so I nuked it for 10 seconds and said another prayer, and it worked!!) and worked quickly to spread it over the stencil and ink blended piece. I removed the stencil (and washed it right away...a MUST do!!) and then of course the hard part of waiting for it to dry!
Once my layer was dry, I trimmed it down just a bit (4" x 5 1/4") and adhered it to a top folding white card base. For my sentiment I used Honey Bee's Bitty Buzzwords stamps and dies to die cut the word "hugs" and emboss in white on a black strip the words "SENDING YOU". I used a little bit of foam tape behind the sentiment strip for a little dimension, and the card was done. My colors are a bit brighter in my photos than they are in real life...they're more pastel and soft, and I'm really pleased with the way this card came out! It will definitely brighten up someone's day!!
