I started by taping my doily stencil to the top of a piece of watercolor paper. I applied Gesso using a foam brush, let it dry, then applied another layer. I also flipped the piece of watercolor paper around and did it at the opposite end.
Next I smooshed (technical term) 3 colors of Distress inks onto my craft sheet - Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, and Broken China.
I spritzed it with a lot of water then, when the Gesso was completely dry, I turned my watercolor paper face down into the ink. I picked it up and dried it with my heat tool to keep the cool ink patterns.
I inked around the edges of the paper with some Peacock Feathers ink.
Next I spritzed it thoroughly with water.
I wiped it with a paper towel to give it a softer look and to remove the ink from the Gesso.
Then I stamped the sentiment in gold and also embossed it in gold. I spritzed and dripped on some gold ink and added some gold bling. It was added to a white card base using foam mounting tape.
And that's it for me today!
