The bright and cheery Gelatos® colors in this kit are sure to warm you up during cooler weather.
I knew right away when I saw the stencils included in this kit that I wanted to use the stencil with the keys. I've been reading a lot of quotes lately about happiness and I made up my own based on this stencil (at least I think I did...:D )
Here is how I made the card:
Rub the Gelatos® from the kit all over watercolor paper. Use fingers to blend.
Using a mister bottle filled with water, mist the paper quite heavily and allow the Gelatos® to drip and blend further. Allow to dry.
Using Palette Knife from the kit, scoop out a small amount of the Texture Luxe™ Pearl and place onto work surface. Mist with water. Dip Stipple Brush into the mixture. Pull back onto the bristles of the brush and allow the Texture Luxe™/water mixture to "flick" onto the paper.
Place the stencil with the keys where you'd like it to be and then using the Palette Knife, scoop a small amount of the Texture Luxe™ Pearl and spread it over the stencil. Lift the stencil straight up. (Prior to the Texture Luxe™ drying I pushed a sequin into it.)
Using another stencil with arrows I repeat the technique, but using Whipped Spackle and selectively stencilling the arrows I wanted.
Using some of the Stamper's Big Brush Pens (May Green #170, Magenta #133, Cobalt Green #156, Light Cobalt Turquoise #154, Pink Madder Lake #129) trace around the arrows and then use a paintbrush with a small amount of water to soften and blend the edges.
The quote reads, "Happiness is the key, you are the destination" and it was created using a VERY old school Dymo label maker.
I hope you've enjoyed the card and tutorial today!
