Let your dreams be your wings

Good morning!
Charmaine here with a card made with a gel press, PaperArtsy paint, and a gorgeous stencil. 

Here are the products I used available at TopFlight Stamps:

Gel Press - Reusable Gel Printing Plate - 5 x 7 Rectangle Gel Plate

Start by applying paint directly onto the gel plate using a brayer. Place the stencil over the plate and use copy paper to remove the excess paint through the stencil. You can do this with a baby wipe as well.

With the stencil still on the plate, apply a contrasting color over the stencil. Remove stencil and let dry.

Pull the print by applying another solid layer over the impression.

Match the stencil to the impression/pulled print and add dimension by applying paste or modeling paste over it through the stencil.

White heat emboss one set of the wings on vellum, then another silver wings on white cardstock. 

Adhere the wings by offsetting them a bit to create the illusion of movement. 

White heat emboss the sentiment on black card stock and mount these to the print. I added a framed die-cut to the center to draw the viewer's eye to the center. 

Isn't this so cool?

I hope you liked today's card using a stencil and gel
 plate and will give it a try.
