Birthday Time card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "XXX".

It's been a very long time since I had used the Gel Plate and I had inspiration to use it. I find it very difficult to make color combinations with the Gel Plate, not all paint is equally opaque, and sometimes a last layer will ruin the project. So I stuck with only black paint, and with black I have lots of contrast. I used Black Soot Distress Paint along with the Clockwork stencil. What a cool effect the Gel Plate gives!


I finally got my hands onToner Ink and this was the first time that I used it and I'm really impressed with the result. First I watched the Heidi Swapp insta TV with Tim Holtz to see how it works with a brayer, because that is a much easier and more efficient way to use the Toner Ink then using it with a stamping pad that dries out. After the Foil, I applied some texture with the Deco Arch stencil and Texture Paste and colored it with Infusions In The Navy, Green Man and Olive Tree.
