Clean & Simple Christmas – Upgrade the Background

Hi Everyone! Marika here with another card and tutorial. Todays card is based on a wonderful chipboard sentiment from Make It Crafty. I wanted it to be the main part of the card so I concentrated on making the background simple and clean to make that sentiment pop just a little bit extra. 

After doing the ink blending I felt that it was a little bit to clean, I wanted to add some more texture to it. So I whipped out a stencil from Create A Smile Stamps and one of my newest purchases, a tub of 3D Glossy Gel from Prima. The glossy gel is like a texture paste but in gel form so it makes a very soft and glossy texture and that paired perfectly with texture from the watercolour card stock I used for the blending. 

To finish it up I picked out a sentiment from Tweet Holidays by My Favourite Stamps that ended in Christmas, and then cut the Christmas away and letting my chipboard word being that last word. It was a real fun card to make and relatively quick, not counting the drying time of that gel tho.
