Welcome back! Hope you’re having a great weekend. Today I have another card with just a little different technique for using Gelatos™ in your background. Here’s a look at today’s card.
Yesterday I created a vibrant background. Today is a little more subtle because my focal element is more vibrant. I used the metallic Gelatos™ on the flowers, making them shimmer as well.
Scroll down to see step-by-step photos on how I created this card or just watch the fast-paced video here:
I black embossed the flowers and covered them with a metallic Gelato™ (one flower in blue and two flowers in silver).
I used the Stamper’s Big Brush Pen (in Flesh and also Red) to create highlights in the flower.
I finished off the flower with some white highlights using the new Stamper’s Big White Pen – I love this new pen!
Finally, I die cut the center panel using a Spellbinders die and put it all together with foam adhesive. I used Ranger Liquid Pearls for the flower centers. I decided to leave it sentiment-less because it was just so peaceful to look at.
Thanks for visiting my posts this weekend. To see more of my cards and videos, visit my blog.
