Revisiting My Faber-Castell Gelatos

Hi, guys!  I am currently taking Jennifer McGuire's online class Kick Start.  It is a blast!  One of the things we learned about this week is to shop our stash, and find things that inspire us when we get "stuck."  I decided to use my Faber-Castell Gelatos this week.  I have not used them in a while.

For this first one, I colored directly on my Anna Griffin background stamp and spritzed it with water.  I used regular card stock on this one.


Supplies:
Stamps: Anna Griffin, Papertrey Ink
Paper: Gina K
Ink: Black Archival, Distress ink
Misc.: Lady Bug Embellishments



On this next card, I used watercolor paper and colored on the Hero Art's background stamp and gave it a light spritz.  By changing up the paper and the amount of water, it gave it a more defined look.


Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts, Verve
Paper: Papertrey Ink, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Archival Black, Distress
Misc.: Papertrey Ink Button, Twine, Ribbon

It was fun using my Gelatos. I am glad I decided to use them for these cards. I found that I have been using the same coloring mediums lately.  I plan to use more of my coloring mediums and share them with you.  Funny how you get used to grabbing the same inks over and over.

Hope you have a great day!  I know my fingers are inky, how about yours?
