Gelatos Resist with Faber Castell Gelatos and a stencil

It's no secret I love Gelatos! They are fun to use and are a calorie free, he he he. In today's cards, I have a fun technique to show you I called "Gelatos resist" and I also show you how to create a second card while "cleaning" your stencil! HE HE HE!!!!

Here is what you will need: Gelatos, Tim Holtz Stencil (I used Scribbles), a wet wipe or a damp cloth, Tim Holtz Deco Sheets, Heart dies, Stitched rectangle dies, Black soot distress ink.

To create the first card, I applied two colors of Gelatos onto a white card panel and blended it with a damp wet wipe. Then I layered the Tim Holtz Scribbles stencil over the top and took the same wet wipe and removed the color! SO COOL! This is the point where I would clean off my stencil with a wet wipe. So I put a piece of white card stock under the stencil and "cleaned" my stencil and voila, a second background for a card was born!

The first card I used the background as the focal point of the card. I used some Deco Sheets by Tim Holtz to die cut the word die and the golden strips.

For my second card, I decided to die cut the panel with a Heart die and make that the focal point. I love how soft the colors are and I LOVE that I got two cards out of one sitting!

I have a video showing you how I created both cards! I hope that you enjoy!! :)
