There is a fun challenge over on Stamp TV of CASE'ing one of the Gina K. Designs DT members and this week we are CASE'ing Carolina Buchting. I chose this card of hers to CASE: Party Like Rock Star.
For my card I used the same stamp set Live Life Loud, different sentiment (from the set), added extra layers, distressing, and created a fun background using Gelatos. Faber-Castell makes these neat little chapstick look coloring tools called Gelatos. A little background..."Gelatos are creamy sticks infused with brilliant color. The color glides easily onto papers and can be dissolved with water to create watercolor effects or left to dry for vibrant burst of color. They are acid free and odorless." ~Design Memory Craft booklet
Today I want to show how you can use them to create a fun background.
I used the orange, yellow and red Gelatos and coloring them directly onto my Tim Holtz mat as you see here...
Then I spritzed the Gelatos on the mat lightly with water...
Then simple enough, I turned my cardstock over and rubbed it directly onto the cardstock in a cirular motion.
Due to the moisture, the cardstock curled a bit, however, once you dry it with a heat gun it goes back flat again.
It creates the coolest look :o)
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
