Spring Fairies...
Watercolor Stamping With Gelatos

Emboss Resist with Gelatos

Hi everyone! Jill Foster here with an emboss resist technique using Gelatos.
Begin by stamping Hero Arts Wreath of Leaves (CG215) with VersaMark ink on white cardstock. Next, heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Color directly on top of this white cardstock (and your embossed image) using the Gelatos shown in the photo or any other color combo you desire.  Be sure to completely color the background- this will make blending easier.  Blend these colors together using your fingertip, adding more color from the gelato while blending to darken the color. Stamp Hero Arts Friend Definition (CG125) on top of the gelato background using a Stamper's Big Brush Marker, removing some ink from the stamp with a baby wipe before stamping. When finished remove the excess Gelato ink from the embossed wreath with a baby wipe. Sentiment by Papertrey Ink.

The possibilities and color combos are really limitless with this technique.  Have fun!
