As you may know, I have a few Gelatos on hand, and I'm always looking for new ways to use them. Today I caught this video using Gelatos and a stencil and I decided to try it. It's crazy-easy to do! Check out what I just made:
1. Scribble several colors of Gelatos onto a regular piece of card stock.
2. Rub with your finger(s) to blend.
3. Place a stencil over the Gelato'd background. Hold it or tape it into place.
4. Go over it with a baby wipe.
You're done. The wipe removes some of the color from the openings in the stencil and leaves the negative behind. Like I said: crazy-easy. Just think of the possibilities with all the stencils in your growing collection. :)
I decided to leave the background as it was and just add the image and sentiment from a Mama Elephant set I HAD to have when I first saw it, and yes, I just now used it. AND I broke my 50% rule since I pretty much only wanted those two images. heh heh I inked the images in Versafine Onyx and clear-embossed them. Done.
I really like how this turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!
