Hey everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Lawnscaping Challenge #70 – to get Polka Dot crazy! I tried my hand at stencilling again, but this time using some Gelatos – I love how this turned out, even though I’m still waiting for the design to ‘dry’ 🙂

What I mean is that those Gelatos are so creamy and take to stencilling so well, but where they get caught up in the stencil and transfer to your work surface, they seem to just sit on top – admittedly, this is my first time using them…

I took some punchinella and laid it on top of a white piece of cardstock diagonally and then rubbed three different coloured Gelatos over the top. Now, it didn’t do what I thought it would, so I grabbed a small makeup sponge and blended the Gelatos through the stencil – this gave me the result you can see in the photos – they blended beautifully in some places but stayed raised in others…

Before mounting the panel to a card base, I stamped this wonderful sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Dad’s Day set in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I die-cut the Memory Box Chloe Stem from some black cardstock and foam mounted onto the front and finished by adding a natural twine bow.

Thanks for looking!
