Sweet Tooth Tuesday - Gelatos

It's that time again! Danielle Pandeline here with another video for you.  This time I am tacking Gelatos! When these creamy chap stick things came out I wasn't sure what to think. But, I have learned to LOVE them by just PLAYING! Sometimes you have to just play with a medium to get to know it. It's fun to get messy and covered in colors to come out with an AMAZING result! I know you know what I'm talking about!

Here is my card that I made using Gelatos, Stencil, Paint Brush and some Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps.  The background is used by smearing the Gelatos across the background in an Ombre patterned, then spritzed with water and go back and forth with your paint brush. EASY PEASY right?  Then to make the silver circles, I took the stencil and rubbed the Gelatos over the area I wanted. Took a baby wipe ( A stampers best friend!) and smooshed the silver Gelato around in circles. Peel up the stencil and VIOLA! Instant texture. Now, be sure to let the Gelato dry over night! Remember it is a soft creamy medium, it will dry with time.

 I used Spin Me and Alpha Tabs to create this BRIGHT, FUN and AMAZING card.
