Oh, which colors?

I have the red and blue and metallic. Of course, they are still in the package as I am trying to unbury my desk first. But I can't wait to try them!

WCDog, I never have luck linking 2 Peas videos, but if you go to the Mood series video from 4/23 that Wilma made, you'll see her using gelatos for her background - (That water color wash effect).

However, there is so much more that you can use them for! I first came across them a few yrs ago on Jennifer Mcguire's blog - just google her name and "gelatos" and you'll come up with a couple of videos she's made using them. Very cool!

Gelatos are made by Faber Castell, and if you go to the FC blog, you'll find LOTS of great videos using them - either dry or wet - with water and brush or even with a finger. They are sort of a chapstick like tube of color.

These are a simple set of cards that I made using Gelatos. I rubbed the gelato directly onto my paper for the flower center and then using a brush and some water, I "painted"/created petals around and around as I worked my way out. THEN I stamped and heat embossed (white) the flower image on top. I keep a few cards like these around and I just stamp a sentiment on them last minute when I know what the card will be used for.

At first, I wasn't happy with mine and thought maybe they were dried out or old. But once i used gesso on my surface first, a whole new world opened up. I want every color they make now. I spritzed a baby wipe with water and made little swirl patterns all over my mother's card. Sorry no photo. Love love love Gelatos


be Creative and be Blessed!

Can I hi-jack for a minute:

So putting water on my paper doesn't seem all that great...I guess there really isn't all that much, but ummmmm????

I have some of those (either Stampin Up or CTMH) blended crayons... kinda of the same idea??? Except I don't know if those would work on foam stamps?? Might have to try that out??

How expensive are they??
