Gel Print Card #2 and Using Squares

I created another card using a gel print as the background and the same stamped images as THIS card. I added a lot to the gel print and of course did not take any before or during photos. I left my phone downstairs and didn't feel like retrieving it. LOL

This green gel print background was a first pull before adding stencils (check out the video HERE). I could have used it as is, but I decided to add more to it. I used my favorite script stamp and black archival ink; a stencil and yellow (Pineapple Smoothie/Fun Stampers Journey) acrylic paint; and a square stencil & a white POSCA pen to draw in the squares. I also splashed gold glitter from a glitter marker.

For this card, I used a black cardstock square to add the sentiment & the stamped images.

You'll notice that I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and drew a white border around the black square base. As an afterthought, I also tucked in some gold thread.

I'm entering this card on the Country View Challenges site. Their current challenge theme is using one or more squares on  your project.


  1. This is just GORGEOUS! Love the sentiment on black with the white outline.

  2. A great card for our squares challenge over at country view. Thanks so much for joining us x
