I'm so excited about this week's challenge because it's all about using Gelatos!!! Faber-Castell is sponsoring two generous prizes valued at $62 each! To be eligible, just upload your card by July 7th.
Here's my cards:
Once dry, I placed a Stampendous/Dreamweaver stencil over the Gelato and using a baby wipe, removed color. Tip: Try using a less juicy wipe to avoid excess seepage. A lint free cloth dipped in water works as well. Remove the stencil and allow the ghosted image to dry. Using a Misti, stamp the botanical branches and tiny birds as shown (Catherine Pooler).
Though it's hard to see, the panel behind the framed panel is 'stamped' (Catherine Pooler) with Gelato scribbled directly on the stamp and lightly misted with water. I got several stampings before I needed to 're-load' with more Gelato and water. Even if you get too much water, just stamp off on a scrap piece.
The word best (Catherine Pooler) is diecut out of craft foam.
Okay, so I think you know I'm gaga over Gelatos and LOVE a reason to play. Challenges keep our skills fresh and utilized. We have years of skills and this is a great way to continue our creative process.
Thank you for stopping by!
