Hi everyone, Mou here today with a shimmery holiday card tutorial using Silver Ice Gelatos®! It's quick and easy. Gather the supplies listed below and follow along.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Gel Medium
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist Pens: BLACK
Other: Watercolor paper, ledger paper or another print paper, scissors, stamp, palette/ craft mat, paint brush, water
Trim watercolor paper down to your favorite size and fold in half to make the card base. Rub Silver Ice Gelatos softly on the surface and blend with water.
Did you know that you can use your Gelatos with stamps? Just gently rub Silver Ice Gelatos on a scripty background stamp. Then huff on it or spritz it with a little water to activate the pigment. Stamp all over the card using this technique. Remember that we are simply trying to create an interesting background, so the stamping does not need to be perfect. In fact, in this case, the more imperfection the better.
Rub some Iced Chai Gelatos on a palette or craft mat and activate with water. Splatter the diluted pigment on the card as shown.
Use the same stamp with the Iced Chai Gelatos to create another shimmery layer to your card.
Take some ledger or print or another found paper and cut it into a Christmas tree. Again, the more childish your cut, the better!
Attach the tree to the card with Gel Medium. Add a small banner piece below the tree and write your greetings on it with Essential PITT Artist pen to finish.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial! A very Happy Holidays to you and yours!
