For A Special Friend

Well this month I've been totally blown away with the range of techniques and products used by the DT at CAS Stencil and the April challenge - Embossing Pastes/Gels, and so today I've combined a couple of ideas for my stencil rose.  First I decided to make a one layer card so I carefully masked off the leaves on the stencil and made sure the card and stencil were taped down.  I mixed Candied Apple DO with Gel Medium and used a palette knife to spread it through the stencil, quickly then I got my container of white fine glitter and sprinkled it on and gently removed the stencil.... now let that dry - patience!!  I had leftover, so I quickly did another rose on scrap - now must get the stencil washed up.  Then replaced the stencil, and repeated the process using Mowed Lawn DO, for the leaves.  Sighhhh - it worked. To finish my card, I stamped and silver embossed my sentiment.
I am also playing along with Happy Little Stampers CAS April challenge - One Layer Card.
Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it - happy stenciling.
