Water Coloring using Gelatos® with Mindy.

Hi there everyone. It's GDT Mindy here.

I'm so very excited about being a guest designer for Faber-Castell.

Today I have a little water coloring project I made using Gelatos®. First, I'd like to say how in love I am with these little amazing sticks of color! You can seriously do anything with them.

I started off by stamping my image and then taking Acqua Dolce, Lavendar and Earl Grey Gelatos®. and mixed the colors up a little for my background.


Then I mixed the colors with a touch of water and my fingertip.


Next, I scribbled some of my Licorice Gelato®. onto my paint tray and with my deluxe water brush I added color all over my image and then added shadows and went a little darker in some areas creating a deeper effect. I just love the colorful background against the black and white image!


Then I took my Whipped Spackle and a spots stencil and added some 'snow' and I went all along the edge and along the bottom creating a blanket of snow.


Then I added some White Gesso to my piece of cardboard that I have matted behind my image.I thought the snow needed a little something extra so I took my Glass Bead Glitter and and added some sparkle to the snow areas. I actualled took my Paint brish and brushed going over the image so it created sparkle between the snow balls on the image. It almost looks like these two are walking in a snow storm, doesn't it?

Here's my finished card. I hope you enjoyed it!
