Open Gate Again

"Live as if someone left the gate open." Sometimes we need to be reminded that each moment is a precious gift that should not be thrown away. I really like this image with the horse galloping free. It is simple, but speaks volumes. What are your reactions? Please share.

   Let It Ride

   Mossy Meadow A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

   Archival Basic Black
   Mossy Meadow
   Various Acrylic Paints

   Powdered Gel Press Background

   Baking Soda
   Gel Press
   Silver Star Brad

To create my Powdered Gel Press background, I followed a You Tube video by Understand Blue. It is found at: Understand Blue's Powdered Gel Press Background 

I used some yellow and blue acrylic paint on my gel press. I spread the color with my brayer. I added a bit of baking soda, more ink and spread it all with my brayer. I then pulled a couple of prints. You want to leave it to dry and set. I did not like mine at first, but I'm glad I did not throw it away. After a couple of days, I used it to make this card.

I placed the panel in my stamparatus and stamped the images and the sentiment. I recommend that you use whatever tool you have to be able to stamp multiple times on the same spot in order to get a crisp, clean image. 

I then adhered the panel to the Mossy Meadow card base. I also added another Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.
