Marjie provided us with a heart stencil, so when I came home I decided to test it out using the Golden Glass Bead Gel. It's a product I mentioned in one of my very first posts in January. I also used it on a card recently, with a numbers stencil.
The Golden Glass Bead gel goes on clear and when dry, leaves a layer of glass beads. In this case I decided I wanted to have a purple glass bead heart. So I used the Distress Stains to tint the gel. I applied a layer to the stencil, smoothed it evenly and then lifted off the stencil. I let it dry overnight and finished by stamping hearts, adding arrows and a cute candy heart brad to finish it off.
