After applying a layer of gesso and masking off the sides of my panel, I applied gelatos in rainbow order, smoothed them out and then removed the colour through a stencil that I had cut using the W&W Leaf effect cutaway.
I used my MISTI to stamp the HI sentiment from the Scenery: Bigger Bang Confetti set several times using Archival Jet black ink. Because of the watercolour cardstock and the gesso, I could not get perfect coverage, even after several rounds of stamping, so I used a black Micron pen to fill in the blank spots. To finish off, I heat embossed the sentiment in clear embossing powder, mounted the panel to my card base and added a few sequins.
In hindsight, I should have mounted the panel onto a heavier weight cardstock to prevent warping and it would be better to apply a fixative to avoid smearing of the gelatos, but I suppose I can still fix this before sending out my card.
