More fun with Gelato's

The Stampendous Team is quite excited to get to play with Faber-Castell products this week!
We will be randomly sharing projects throughout the week that we made with products from Stampendous and Faber-Castell and will end the week with a fun hop on Friday!

I am pretty happy with how this experiment turned out!

I started by trying the "direct to rubber" technique with Gelatos.
I colored the Cherry Print Background stamp with Melon, Grape, Gold, and MInt Gelatos.  Then I spritz with water and stamped on a white cardstock panel.


Then I stamped Cherry bird directly over the stamped background image with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with detail black embossing powder.
I painted in the Cherry Bird image with Gelatos by scribbling the gelatos directly on my craftmat and then picking up the color with my watercolor brush.  I used Grape, Tangerine, Tangerine, Bubblegum, Blueberry, Chocolate, and Mint to paint the bird.  I colored the yellow part of the flower with a Cadmium Yellow Pitt artist pen.

For the final touch I sprinkled on some embossing enamels and glass glitter from the Purple Encrusted Jewel Kit and heated from underneath to melt.

What an adorable card. I just love the colors and am liking the embossing with the glass glitter. The gelato's look like they are so easy to use. Love the whole water color effect. Thank you so much for sharing you're ideas.

Aren't the Faber-Castell products a dream to use?? They are so versatile that it is like having a whole color toolbox with just a few products! TFS!
