Stamping with Gelatos & Penny Black Inc.'s Slapstick

Hello Faber-Castell's Friends! alexandra here today, to talk to you about stamping with Gelatos using Penny Black Inc's slaptick/cling stamps.

The slapstick/Cling stamp used is: Indian Wheel #40-202

I started by "painting" directly onto the slapstick stamp with my various shades of pink/orange Gelatos. Then I sprayed a little bit of water onto the stamp and stamped the Indian Wheel pattern on a large sheet of watercolor paper.
Stamping with Gelatos is not only easy but it also looks quite "artsy". I even like the fact that the result is not completely even. It creates instant depth...
Once dry, I trimmed my paper and scored it to make the cover for a mini album. I decorated the front cover, added inside pages and used twine to bind it all together.
Here is a look at the mini, all finished and ready to bear pictures of a summer in the Windy City...
I had used another slapstick/Cling stamp from Penny Black Inc. to stamp with Gelatos to make a larger album. To view that second take, please click HERE.

Thank You!

Ce que j'aime dans tes réas c'est que c'est du mixed media mais cela reste très doux au niveau couleur ! Bravo Alexandra !
