So as I said in my previous post I had more cards to show and tell with gelatos, lol. So here are some more. Having loads of fun with them.
The first is my fave so far. Took a but of work but it was worth it I think :) I used Maya Road Around the World stamp set for the gorgeous map and globe images and Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stamps for the pen nibs. I stamped the main map onto a scrap of Kraft like paper from some packaging with versamark and then embossed it with ranger superfine clear. This was more of a tester before I tried it on a ranger kraft tag, but I liked it so much I wanted to use it :)
I used a waterbrush directly to the end of a gelato to add colour to my map. The paper was very thin so I mounted it onto some manila for stability. I stamped the pen nibs on a piece of manila and then added the globes with gathered twigs distress ink. I added some distress ink around the edges then grabbed a manila label of each of the sizzix movers and shapers dies and inked their edges too. Both the map and happy birthday are stuck down with foam squares. I added some chain and baubles to the dangly post card label and then mounted the whole thing on a dark brown cs base.
Because the brown cs is so dark I die cut another piece of manilla with the movers and shapers ornate die and inked the edges before plaing it inside the card.
The next card has a red and green gelato background that I stamped with another TH Stampers Anon stamp. I stamped the centre image first, then stamped one to each side without reinking the stamp. I added some beads and chain and a little silver key. I used festive berries distress ink for alll the stamping including the saying that I then embossed.
I used manila to create a card base and stamped the focal stamp around the edges as it looked a little to bare before I did lol. I created the backround by laying colour 1/4 of the way up each side and then using my water brush the pull the colour to the middle. I then used the same colour gelato around the edges and used my finger to blend it in.
Hope you are enjoying the cards I have been making with gelatos :) They are fun to play with. still working on the watercolour techniques... I keep adding too much water!!!
