Hello my friends. Recently I watched Kay on Hochanda working with gelatos and she inspired me to play.
As the current challenge on the Indigoblu blog is monochrome , I decided to go with this theme.
So out came all the blue gelatos and a white pearl one. I then used watercolour card and scribbled with the gelatos which I spritzed liberally with water and allowed to drip and run.
I then stamped the beautiful snowflake (I love this stamp) several times using a dark blue gelato. Using one of the gelato tools I stamped several dots and added shadow and highlighted areas to emulate bubbles.
I then stamped the snowflake twice on acetate and embossed one in blue pearl and the other in black detail wow embossing powder. I fussy cut them and layered them so the black created a shadow.
I stamped the sentiment in cobalt blue archival ink and clear embossed. I die cut it with a banner die by Sue Wilson and attached as shown.
I finished it off with some seed beads and 2 snowflakes. It's a pity that the shimmer is not captured by the photos.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
IndigoBlu challenge blog - monochrome
HLS Christmas challenge - watercolours (gelatos)
Craftstamper take it make it challenge - anything goes
