Instructions

 

 

Stickles Glitter Gels I Love You Card Step 1

Step 1: Lay the 'Flower Power' stencil on top of a piece of white cardstock measuring 4” x 5.25”. Use the Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply ink through the stencil in Breakup Blue, Prom Queen, and Crown Me. Overlap the colors lightly to get a nice blend, but don't focus on a perfect blended background as you'll be covering this in the next step. Do not remove the stencil from your ink-blended background.

Step 2: Use a palette knife to scoop out a bit of Glitter Gel in Venus. Apply the gel to the ink-blended background without moving the stencil. Focus the Venus Glitter Gel over the areas that are pink, then clean the palette knife and use the Pegasus Glitter Gel over the purple areas.
