Kaleidoscope Flower

Today's card was a fun one to create using my Gel Plate again and this cool Kaleidoscope Flower stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I got out my Gel Plate, brayer and some white cardstock.
  • I pressed my Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink pad directly onto the Gel Plate and brayered it smooth.
  • Next, I placed the Kaleidoscope Flower stencil onto the plate and rubbed over it with some scrap paper to lift some of the ink off.  I removed that and the stencil and rubbed my piece of white cardstock over the plate to pull the print. (using that stencil produced the white spots you see on the panel)
  • Using the same stencil, I laid the panel onto my Make Art Station and positioned the stencil over the inked panel but slightly moved it over and down and then inked with some more of the same purple ink.
  • I placed the inked panel into my Misti and stamped the Grid over the whole thing and then splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • When the panel was dry, I die cut the sentiment from the center and the word shadow with some white cardstock.
  • I glue the panel onto an A2 card base and popped the sentiment back into place in the middle.

Here is the stencil I used:

A very clever stencil design Karen and love the look of the gelli print with some ink removed and then by moving the stencil and adding more ink giving a shadow effect which looks great, and the added white of the die cut sentiment addded over the piece you cut from the print itself really stands out. x
