So until I start working on a mixed media project I might as well use my Gelatos for some card making....this is what I made today...
I began by scribbling with Gelatos on a diecut piece of textured black cardstock. The colors I used were: Margarita Mix, Banana, Watermelon, Metallic Melon. Sprinkled a little water with a brush, smudged the colors with my fingers and let it dry. Added another layer of the colors and smudged it.
Finally rubbed in some Coconut Gelato using a homemade stencil with circles of different sizes.
I loved how Gelatos are opaque so they can be used to add color on dark backgrounds.
The dies are from WPlus9 and Avery Elle (Finished Frames Die).
I mounted the finished black panel on white card base like this
Here, here and here are links to some cards on which I've used Gelatos.
