Playing With Gelatos

Hey there!  Just wanted to do a quick post to show you a card I made with my new gelatos.  My husband got me a big set for Christmas and I'm finally getting to play with them.  :-)  I decided to use the foam stamp that came in my kit for my first experiment.  Take a look...

I coloured right on the stamp and then blended the colours a bit with my finger and then spritzed with some water.  Next I stamped on my paper.  I tried to create a rainbow effect with my colours.  I love the watercolour look to this.  I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations) and mounted my panel with some foam dots to my card base and called it done!  :-)  I used the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch for my layout.  I changed only where the sentiment was located.  Love the bright colours against the white cardstock.  I'll be playing some more with my gelatos and I'll share my results soon.

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

Well, that's all for now!  Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
