Monday Musings

Hi Bloggers!
Just a quick post today...I finished up a card that I started at a Make & Take a few weeks ago.  The card was made using Gelatos and Archival ink.  

First I just colored a small piece of white card stock, using a variety of Gelato coloring pens/crayons.  These babies are so much fun!  They are water-based and work well in all sorts of techniques.  Later this week I will show you some of them!

For this card, after the white piece of card stock had been colored, I stamped an image of a bird on it with Archival Black Ink.  I think the result was very nice!  When I got it home, I decided to take it off the white card background and change the background to a turquoise shimmery one.  I then lined it with a black mat to highlight the black ink.  

Here is the finished card.

Later this week I will be demonstrating various techniques using Gelatos, so please check back!
Happy Creating!
