Holiday Card Video 2013: Stenciled Snowflakes
My art supplies cabinet is bulging with wonderful products I use in scrapbooking and art canvases. I thought it would be fun to use some of them on a card. You can sub out a lot of the things on this card for whatever you have in your stash. The only thing you really need is heavy gel.
The stencil is from Hobby Lobby. It was back in the home stencil section. They have a lot of great choices and they are cheaper than the ones in the scrapbooking section. A very detailed stencil works best for this technique.
To add color to the gel, I used Perfect Pearls. You can also use ink. Since the Perfect Pearls are a powder, they don't dilute the gel. You only need just a little bit. The gel dries clear so all that white color disappears. Whatever color you add, go light as it will dry a lot darker. Here is the gold snowflake still wet.
Here's the video at YouTube:
This is the 3rd of my holiday cards. The other videos are O Holy Night and Washi Tree. Thanks for watching!
