Monochromatic Leaves

Good Morning
Today's card features the Spring Foliage stencil, one of my favs from the new release at A Colorful Life Designs.
This card came together so quickly using my Gel Plate.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I got out my Gel plate, the Spring Foliage stencil and some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink.
  • I pressed the ink directly onto my Gel Plate and brayered it smooth, then placed the stencil onto the plate.  I rubbed some white cardstock over the plate to lift the print.  
  • It was a good print but I thought it needed more so, I laid the stencil back over the print and inked over it with some Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink.  By moving the stencil slightly off to where it was for the first print, I was able to give it a great shadow look.
  • I placed the panel into my Misti to stamp the sentiment, then splattered the whole panel with my white Posca pen.
  • I glued the finished panel onto a piece of white cardstock, then onto a piece of matching blue cardstock.
  • I glued it onto an A2 sized card base and done.

Here is the stencil I used:

You make such great gelli plate prints using your stencils Karen, and this is really pretty, and love the shadow effect you have managed to the two blue colours and a great sentiment too. x
