Beautiful In Every Way




Hello Friends

I spent last night in my craft room and made five cards I was on a roll It is so unusual for me as I never seem to make a few cards in a row. I was testing out my new Metallic Gelatos. Oh how I love them. They are so creamy and lush to work with. This is one of the cards I made. I created my background with this lovely stamped flower from Unity it is called Much Of A Good Thing.  The Sentiment is from another stamp set called Every Way Beautiful.



I stamped the image with distress inks Bundled Sage & Worn Lipstick. I then coloured them with two of the gelatos that were closet in colour  they are Iced Pear & Melon.  I used them pretty much like water colour paints. I rubbed some of each colour on to my craft sheet and added some water and used a paint brush to colour with. I wanted a messy look to it so I added some gelato splatters to the background. Next I stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I then distressed the edges of the paper and added it to a black card base.

I really love the way it looks  the photos do not do it any justice. The sheen from the gelatos is really pretty but it does not show very well in the picture.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
