I have been a long time fan of Gelatos and pairing them with their Glass Bead Glitter Gel and a gorgeous skyline stamp set from The Ton resulted in something really sparkly and fun! Gelatos are so fun to use and are calorie free, lolololol!
I also have a video to go along with this card! You can watch it here on the blog or over on my youtube channel in HD by clicking HERE!
I’m used the new Iridescent Gelatos in my project. They are on their way to retailers but most haven’t received them just yet. You can achieve a similar look by using regular Gelatos and coating them with the Glass Bead Glitter Gel if you wanted to try it without having to wait for the stores to get them. I know patience isn’t my virtue. Ask anyone!
Just look at that texture and shine!!! That’s mostly all from the Glass Bead Glitter Gel! 🙂 The skyline set has some other images on there so you really create a fun scene! In the video, I show a couple of different techniques you can do with gelatos and water! I also fiddled quite a bit with the water until I got the look that I wanted, 🙂
One thing I did want to point out, I know I am a broken record, anytime you use Gelatos, I strongly suggest you prime your card base with Gesso. Gesso works as a primer and creates a smooth surface making the Gelatos blend easily and perfectly!!! Trust me!!!!
Before I go, I had to leave you with one more close up of the glass bead glitter gel. Look at all that sparkle surrounding the skyline! Swoon…. When I applied it to the card (and you will see this in the video), it looks like a hot mess! It looked like I totally ruined my card! But it dries completely clear and leaves that sparkle and texture behind! And all that sparkle DOES’NT COME off! I don’t use glitter because I don’t like it coming off on my hands and going up my nose, hahaha!
Alright, you’ve had enough of me today!!! I will see you next time! Thanks so much for dropping by! 🙂
