If you take a little time to get use to the gelatos you will love the richness of the colors. On both cards I used the gelatos on stamps to create these rich backgrounds on canvas. I applied them directly to the stamp and spritzed with water. I used Penny Black's paisley background with the red big brush marker on the butterfly.
this variety pack but, once I used it on this butterfly I fell in love with these pastel pencils! I want every color!! I know some of you aren't comfortable blending...well these pencils are for you. All you do is color an area and use your finger to pull the color further down into your image. Does that make sense??
The sentiment is one of SRM's new releases. Love the script!
You will be seeing more cards with these Spellbinder ribbon tags ... LOVE them! I have had these for a while and I don't know what I was waiting for but, now I am smitten!
Do your kiddos like grapes?? Do you?? Well...next time around pick through the vines for some good "V" shapes to use as antenna as I did on this canvas butterfly.
I used Glossy Accents to adhere the grape vine to the butterfly. Really love the look!
All of the stamps are listed below in the supplies.
Let me know if you have any questions. Before CHA I get to take the Copic Intermediate class with Debbie Olsen!! I can't wait. Do you have anything fun on the horizon?
Have a happy day. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. Scroll down to see another technique that I used with this same butterfly or click here. Here is a solid green butterfly I created in January.
