Welcome back! This month I'm going to be playing with a Gel Printing Plate and using the awesome new stencils in the shop! For today I used some Distress Inks to watercolor a panel!
I started with a round gel plate and swiped on a few colors of Distress Inks that I knew would blend well when they ran together. Here it looks like there is hardly any ink on it, but....
I sprayed some water over it (mine is infused with some Ink On 3 Liquid Pixie Dust 'cause... sparkle!) I laid a panel of watercolor paper over the top and pressed it in and then removed the panel and set it aside to dry.
While I waited for it to dry, I stamped and/or cut all of my pieces. I used Color Fuse Inks for the sentiment from the Unbirthday Stamp Set... first stamping the green, cleaning it off; then stamping the blue; cleaning it off and finally the purple... making sure I had some overlap between each. I fussy cut it out and added some popup foam to it. I cut the panel and heart at the same time to create a window by securing both on a panel of white and running them through the die cut machine together.
I cut two panels of cardstock 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 and layered them together. I added foam tape to the back of the heart panel.
When the water colored panel was dry, I used the NEW Latte Love stencil to add some texture paste to it. Finally when that was dry, I layered all of my pieces together and added a few sequins!
