So, today, I have a little set of tags that I made using some stamps, clear embossing powder and Gelatos. I love those little sticks of color. In case you don't know what they are you can see them here at Emma's Paperie.
I began by using regular shipping tags from Staples. I pulled out my stamps, some clear embossing powder, the Gelatos, and some enamel dots and shaped paper clips. Fort this tag, I stamped my stamp repeatedly onto the card and embossed it with the clear embossing powder. Then, I took my gelatos, and lightly colored over the stamps. Finally, I took my waterbrush (but you can use a regular paint brush and water) and washed over the gelato color, blending it together. I added the stitching when it dried.
This next tag was super easy. I took a small heart stamp and repeatedly stamped it as a border. Then, I took my wet brush and rubbed it onto the Gelato stick to get the color and simply painted it right onto the heart. Again, I stitched and embellished when it was dry.
There are lots of tutorials using Gelatos on the Faber Castell Blog. I plan on visiting it often!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day. :)
