Hello friends. Playing along with this weeks Make it Monday challenge where Melissa shows us how to use Gelatos to soften the look of our stamped flowers. I've never used Gelatos before, so had to run to Michael's to get some, and I'm glad I did...really fun technique! This is what I came up with:
I started with the Basic Bookmark #2 die and white linen cardstock, and then stamped my leaves in Limeade Ice ink (Bitty Bouquets) and my flowers in Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Harvest Gold, & Lavender Moon inks (Beautiful Blooms). I added a French script to the background in Smoky Slate ink and a couple pieces of washi tape to the top of the tag. My "Smile" sentiment banner is from Reasons to Smile. I used Background Basics: Gingham in Limeade Ice ink on the bottom of my card base, and then embossed the rest in a Cuttlebug dotted embossing folder. I added a hot pink doily over the top of my card base before attaching the tag, and then finished my card with a few candy colored enamel dots and some bakers twine.
You can check out Melissa's beautiful card and video (and all the other entries) over on Nichole's blog right here.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
