I love polka dots and I had a few different things in my stash that I could choose from... but I landed on this great stencil from Paper Rose and had some fun with ink blending and Nuvo Glimmer Paste.
I started out by using Purple Tape to adhere my stencil to my card front and then stencilled three colours of Distress Ink over the stencil. I made sure to overlap my colours to get the full rainbow on my card. I wiped off the excess ink with a tissue before I did a layer of the Nuvo Glimmer Paste over the top of the stencil. I set the panel aside to dry while I cut three "hello" words out of black cardstock and layered them together with glue (glue is good because you have a little time to "play" before it sets up). Once the panel was dry (about 15 minutes), I cut it down to 4" X 5.25" and adhered it to the front of a coloured top folding card.
