For my project I designed a card and I had fun with the Gelatos using them to create a wonderful background and also for water coloring the poppies image.
To start I stamped the floral image and sentiment from CL-04380 Poppies Lables Twenty Nine stamp set from JustRite Papercraft on to a piece of Simply Smooth White paper from DiscountCardstock.com. I used VersaMagic Midnight Black ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko and then I embossed it with clear embossing powder and my heat tool.
Next I scribbled the Gelatos--Green Tea, Red Cherry and Black on to an acrylic block and used a water brush to watercolor the image. I started with the Green Tea on all of the leaves and then I used Red Cherry for the poppies and Black for the flower centers.
I wanted to add just a hint of color around the floral image to soften it up so I lightly colored with Art Grip Aquarelle Yellow 105 and then I used a water brush to blend out the color.
Moving on the to background I used CL-04500 Grand Damask Background stamp and Red Cherry and Black Gelatos. I used the Gelatos to color directly on to the stamp. I started with the Black Gelato in the center of each damask and then I went around the edge of the Black with the Red Cherry Gelato to blend the two colors. Then I wiped off the end of the Red Cherry Gelato with a baby wipe to remove any of the black color that was mixed in. I finished the coloring by adding the Red Cherry Gelato on the outer edges of each damask image to get the deep red color. I lightly misted the stamp with water and then stamped on to a piece of Simply Smooth White cardstock.
Here is a close up of the background.
I blended the background using my fingers and I started with the Black and then blended the Red Cherry. I added a little more Red Cherry as needed. Once I had the stamped image and the background done it was time to put my card together.
Here is a close up of my card.
I used Really Red cardstock for a base and then I die cut the damask background using S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A die template from Spellbinders Creative Arts™. For the image of the poppies I used S5-156 Labels Twenty-Nine die template. I thought the S2-004 Poppy Patch die template would make the perfect die cut to match the card. I used Black Licorice cardstock and added some Recollections red bling to each flower. I also added some 5/8" Black Crochet Lace Trim and Black Seam Binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
