Congratulations {2014}

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

The school year is coming to an end. 
Next week the students I work with will be
graduating 8th grade and moving on to high school!
I created this card for the student I interpret for.
The background is created using glossy accents and a stencil.
After the glossy accents was dry I used finger daubers to sponge on 6 different WP9 Dye Ink colors.
Because these inks are waterproof, I needed something a bit more than a baby wipe to clean the color from the glossy accents like I was able to with the distress inks on this project.  I used a little bit of Staz-On cleaner on my baby wipe and it came right off.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have you tried stenciling with glossy accents yet?
