Day 3 of Design Memory Craft Feature!!

Welcome to Day 3 of my Design Memory Craft feature!!!


Today I tried a slightly different technique using those fabulous gelatos! For today's project, I used the gelatos just like they were watercolors. I took my waterbrush and picked up ink off the end of the gelato and then colored in my bird images.


 You can continue to reapply to get the darker shades in certain areas. They work just like watercolors, but with a bit more depth of color...


You will also notice that there is a polka-dot detail around the frame of the birds. I could not believe how easy that was. I did that using PITT artist pen in the blue metallic. There was not any of the normal mess trying to get it to work like you so often have with paint/metallic pens. Simply touch the tip to the black card stock and immediately, you have that gorgeous bright blue dot.


Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Happyville
*Making Memories Journaling
*Nestabilities Labels die
*medium brads
*corner rounder
*Prima paper (harlequin)
*Fiskars border punch

It is good to work with new styles in media, that is what makes cards different and sets them apart.
