I blended ink through the stencil, getting lighter as I went out from the middle. I attached it to a white card base with a blue mat. I thought it looked a little plain, so I went over most of the blue ink with Ranger Glossy Accents to give it some shine, and added a rhinestone in the middle.
I used my MISTI to double stamp my sentiment in blue, and clear heat embossed it. I cut it out, using my Cut-Align ruler to make sure it was straight. I matted it with blue, and attached it with foam squares.
