JAS-Use it or lose it

At Just A Scrappin- the Design Team Challenge is to use a product that you have bought but never used. Here is my project-

The product I used is the soft gel (gloss) from Golden. I even used a stencil I had never used.

This was actually so easy. I sprayed the back of my stencil with repositionable Stencil Spray, then mixed Golden's red acrylic paint with the soft gel gloss. I used just a dab of gel, and a couple of drops of paint, and mixed with a palette knife. On a plain white piece of cardstock I put my stencil down, and really pressed down so the goop wouldn't seep under the edges. I had enough goop to make two panels. Cleanup was easy, just soap and water. After the panels dried, I mounted them onto a mat of red cardstock. The center image is an old Stampin' Up stamp of a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air convertible done with red Studio G ink and clear embossing powder. The sentiment is an old rub-on I still had around, along with the black enamel dot.

I think I'm going to send this to my brother for his birthday-after all, what guy doesn't like getting a classic car for his birthday?

Nicely done, Michelle! I love using mixed media mediums. They definitely add a different element to paper crafting. I will have to give this technique a try. Thank you for introducing it. Hugs, K
