I have been watching a few "how to use Gelatos" videos out there in cyberspace and I thought they looked like fun. Gelatos, if you aren't familiar with them, are made by Faber-Castell, they are pigment sticks of bright, vivid color. They can be used for making your own backgrounds and for stamping....I guess there are lots of ways they can be used....and I'm having a great time learning and playing around with them!
Here is my first attempt (well, my only attempt!). I used the blue set of Gelatos (Joann's and Michael's both carry them in sets for about $9.99 a set....of course I would NEVER pay full price and picked up a couple of sets with some heavily discounted coupons! :)) and SCHMEARED (my word) on some white cardstock after running it through the Big Shot with a Quikutz embossing folder (used the debossed side) and then used my finger to blend them. I sprayed with some Pearl Glimmer Mist for a little sheen.
I'm entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Simon Says....Thinking of You/Sympathy.
