Playing with Gelatos

It’s time for another Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge…today it’s a CAS challenge.

Three digis are up for grabs from our fabulous sponsor for the week:

Haven’t played with my Gelatos for a while, so thought it was time.  Three different colors were scribbled on my craft mat and lightly misted with water.  Then, using a small paint brush, I picked up the colors and dotted them on my flowers and leaves, just sort of randomly.

Next comes a liberal dose of Wink of Stella for some real sparkle, a stamped sentiment and a smattering of sequins.  And for something different, I layered it over a colored card base for a change.

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock and SU! Certainly Celery
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black and Ranger Archival Jet Black
Stamps:  Penny Black Charming and Altenew Label Love
All the other stuff:  Margarita Mix, Snow Cone and Metallic Mint Gelatos; water mister, paint brush, Wink of Stella, Pretty Pink Posh aquamarine sequins and adhesive

Challenges entered:
Addicted to Stamps & More #104:  CAS

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

  1. When I saw this card on the DT blog, I couldn't wait to see it up close…Your water coloring is absolutely stunning on your flowers and leaves, and I love how you added sparkle with your WOS marker! Gorgeous card, Lee-Anne!


  2. I think that coloured base is absolutely perfect and just brings out the colours even more. I think you made the right decision as it all would have been lost on a white base. Great card, Lee-Anne – perfect! xx


  3. LeeAnne – I'm swooning over how beautiful and delicate your card is! Those flowers, shimmering with sparkle, are ever so pretty! I agree with Kylie: the coloured card-stock sure adds impact! WOW!
