My last post for The Crafter’s Workshop was so much to make. I used two different mediums from The Crafter’s Workshop to show you two different ways to add foil to your projects with stencils! One of the mediums I used was the Tacky-When-Dry Gel Medium. This is such a versatile medium, I had to share a few more ways to incorporate this medium into your crafting! You can watch the full video tutorial down below!!
The Tacky-When-Dry Gel medium is exactly what it sounds like! It’s a medium that applies like any other gel, but it dries clear and tacky! I mean the possibilities of what you can stick to this are literally endless! Think beach scenes with sand, little animals or clouds with flocking, and a few I’m sharing in my tutorial above, glitter and gilding flakes!
On both of my cards I used the same stencil, Blooming Garden, but used the two different sizes 6×6 & 12×12. I used the entire 6×6 stencil to fill an A2 panel, but used only the rose from the 12×12 stencil. This allowed me to use the larger image and mask away the rest of the stencil for really easy application of the medium. Watch the video tutorial for all the details, tips and tricks to get the best results with both of these applications!
I wanted to keep both finished cards really simple and let the backgrounds be the main focal point. I kept the gilding flakes background card super simple with just a thanks banner and a kraft mat. The glittered rose card, I added a happy die cut that I built up and applied clear embossing powder to for that extra shine. After adding the anniversary sentiment and black mat that card was done, too!
I hope you all enjoyed a look at a few more ideas on how to use the Tacky-When-Dry Gel Medium! You can find all of the supplies I used down below! Happy Crafting Everyone!!
