Creating Backgound for Cards using Gelatos & Paper Crafter Crayons

Background
Hello there! Sharm here today to share how I created a background for my card using Gelatos® & Paper Crafter Crayons Blue Green. This is a fun alternative to using patterned papers for your card background. It is fairly simple and super fun since there's some stamping too!!

 Here's how I put my card together

1

Using a Stamper's Big Brush Pen CHROME GREEN & Stamper's Big Brush Pen PINK MADDER, stamp the leaves & flower design onto a 4x12 cardstock that has been folded in half.

2
Fill up the stamped areas  by colouring in with Metallic Gelatos Color & Clear StampArt GRIP® Aquarelle Red & Paper Crafter Crayons Blue Green. Spritz some water on the area that you wish to colour with the Paper Crafter Crayons Blue Green to create a resist

3

Pick out two colours from your set of Gelatos® and colour at random areas or all around the four corners of the card. Spritz water on it to create a sublte effect

5
Pick out a script stamp of your choice, colour it with Gelatos®, spritz some water on it and stamp on the card

6
Embellish your card with some premade flowers and a Gesso-ed chipboard

Materials Used:

Chipboard: Memory Maze

Flowers: Prima

Hope you lovely crafters give a go at this! Pleasant weekend everyone! :)

I'm finding that I'm liking all the effects of Gelato's. Followed Gina K Design Blog Hop using the Gelato's, and they have some beautiful cards. I want to learn to use them and WOW just learned about the colored pencils you have. I'm going to have to check those out, too...............

Beautiful card and design!
