Gloss Spray + Gel Plate

I couldn't resist showing off one more card made from the things I learned in Dina Wakley's awesome "Focus on Gloss Sprays" class. This one was made using Gloss Sprays on my 6" Gel Plate, with Michelle Ward's beautiful NYC Skyline Stencils and Masks, exclusive to The Ink Pad.
But first here are a few of the more panels I made in class, some using Michelle's Hexagon, Large Hex and Manhole Cover Stencils; others which are a bit more abstract, which we made by pouring, scraping and dripping gloss spray directly on to the paper. In addition to Dina's Gloss Sprays in Night, Eggplant and Fuchsia, I also used Dina Wakley MEdia Acrylic Paint in Lime and White; plus some Distress Oxide Spray in Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed
My card features parts of three different prints using the NYC Skyline Stencils: one made with undiluted Fuchsia and Night Gloss Spray on white cardstock; the "ghost" of that print which I lifted with white paint onto kraft paper; and a "clean up" print in the background which features Lime paint on kraft. I added some loose, sketchy outlines with a black Pitt Pen to enhance the detail of windows, cut around some of the buildings and added a sentiment typed on my 1937 Olympic Elite Typewriter.
I hope you'll be inspired to get out your Gel Plate and favorite stencils and have a bit of messy fun, ASAP! ♥

    I love these cards you made with the gloss sprays. You have inspired me to use my gloss sprays with my Gel Plate and my Stencils. I have not thought of using them that way. You’re work is beautiful.
