Good afternoon and Happy Friday! I hope to do some stamping and crafting this weekend, but we shall see...I also would like to go fishing with my husband and just chill out.
I was looking on the internet for some techniques to use with my Gelato's, and I fell in love with this technique. And it's really simple.
I just applied gesso to plain white cardstock, and let dry. Then I scribbled different colors of gelatos on the top. I kind of blended them together with my fingers a little bit so there wouldn't be any bare spots. Then I spritzed with water and held the cardstock up so the water would run down the page. Let dry. While I was waiting for my card to dry, I punched butterflies from white cardstock and colored them with markers to match the water drips. I added a few sequins in the same color to add a little texture and interest. I stamped "fun" on white cardstock with a blue ink, but it didn't show up very well, so I overstamped it with black ink, punched it out and layered it on a larger circle. Card is complete and can be used for a birthday, anniversary, mother's day, thinking of you, or just about any occasion. You could use any color scheme for the drips, then punch out or stamp flowers, leaves, balloons, or other fun images to make fun cards.
I hope you've enjoyed my card today, and you have a fabulous weekend. Till next time...
