Gelato Watercolour Stamping.

Both these cards are stamped using Gelatos from Faber Castell. The first card uses a Stampin' Up stamp. I coloured the inside with pink first and then used purple around the edges and green for the leaves and stems. I lightly misted the stamp with water and stamped, repeating this three times. I used distress ink with my ink blending tool around the edges. The background is a leftover from Creative Chemistry 101. On my yellow card base I stamped the Prima Notary stamp I coloured with Big Brush Markers.

My second card is actually a second and third generation stamping. My daughter wanted to try my Gelatos and she picked an Mpress stamp set. There was so much gelato left on the stamp I didn't  want to waste it so I grabbed some water colour paper, misted the stamp and stamped, re-misted and stamped again. I then scribbled some of the purple and pink gelatos on my Ranger Craft Sheet and spritzed them with water. I picked them up with a paintbrush and flicked them all over the image. With the leftover gelato on my craft sheet I created a border of the two colours.

I am not the best at stamping with gelatos. I need to do some more work at it lol. But so many techniques, so little time!
Happy Scrappin'
