MIM #211: Using Gelatos with Stamps & Card Concept #34


Make It Monday!
Melissa breaks out the gelatos to accent images.
Loved this technique!
Gives a 'halo' of color around the image you've stamped.


As always, the hardest task is deciding what PTI stamps to use.
Don't get me wrong, love having the choices!
Started with white linen  card stock (love the texture).
Settled on an oldie, the tulip bouquet from Friendship Jar Spring Fillers.
Stamped with Hero Arts: Wet Cement, a mid tone shadow permanent ink.
Colored with copics.
Sentiment: PTI: Graceful Greetings, stamped with Smokey Shadow.

  10. Very nice, Nancy! Beautiful coloring and haloing.

    I haven't had a chance to play with this challenge yet. I've been making an anniversary card for my son and his wife, and this technique didn't speak to me for that.
