Gelato™ Thanks

Here's another card I made at Saturday's crop:

I had brought my Gelatos™ with me, and some water color paper, so I used them for the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge:

I used three of the four colors from my 50s Diner Gelatos™ set. I first scribbled them onto the smooth side of a piece of water color paper, then used a small wet brush to smooth out the colors. They do overlap a bit, and I got a little of the yellow mixed in with the blue in a few places, but I think that's kinda cool.

After it dried, I stamped the sentiment in black, and when I got home (well, today, not last night) I added some Neat & Tangled sequins.

Is this really CAS? I think so. All I did was scribble a few lines of color, add some water, then stamp a bold sentiment. I'll leave that to the challenge judges to decide for sure, though.

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: Hero Arts Big All Time Greetings (I can't find it online anywhere, sorry), Neat & Tangled sequins, and the following:


  1. Perfect! I'll have to try using the water and brush since my fingers just don't blend geletos very good. I love it and know I'll have to CASE this. So pretty!

  2. Lovely! How's the weather up there? I will be spending a few days in Mt. Vernon with my daughter and grandson this week. I hope there won't be snow ;-)

  6. VERY cool use of the Gelatos! I should use mine more than I do. (I tend to eat the dessert version of gelato a lot more often than use the arts & crafts version of Gelato... :p ) Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at CAS - Colours and Sketches!
