gelatos and IndigoBlu

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:

HLS Christmas challenge - watercolours (gelatos)


  1. This is beautiful Theresa in the wonderful shades of blue and I love the large snowflake on acetate with the pretty pearls centrepiece. I saw Kay using the gelatos and they do look fun to use, so maybe when funds permit I will give them a try. x

    1. they are a great medium and i don't use them as much as i should, hugs xx

  2. Hello Theresa, beautiful card and its lovely to see you got out the Gelatos and used those along with that wonderful snowflake. I love the idea of embossing on Acetate. Thanks so much for entering the IndigoBlu Blog Challenge this month. Sue xx
