Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge

on September 17, 2014

P1010039 (640x379)

This card was created for Simon Says Wednesday Challenge to use gelato’s to create an original background.

Blue, Yellow and Orange Gelato’s were applied directly to Tim Holtz watercolor paper. Water was added to soften the colors and allowed to dry.

A Stencil Girl stencil was taped to the card and Colorbox white pigment ink was applied to the stencil.

Flag:  Avery Elle  with Bazzill Orange cardstock

Sentiment:  Lil Ink Stay Beautiful

P1010044 (640x360)

For this card, I taped the same Stencil Girl stencil to Neenah 80lb. paper and colored the stencil with blue gelato.  I would rub some gelato onto the stencil and smeared with my finger.  I am not sure I did justice to the wonderful Stencil Girl stencil.

I added the same flag with PTI vellum  cut with Avery Elle die.

Lil Inker Stay Beautiful stamp was used for the sentiment and embossed in black.

Embellished with clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Matted with Blue cardstock.

    Great effect you got there with your background – I love the warm colours on the first one and the almost water colour effect on the second.
    Thanks joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
