Today I’m sharing this card using Gerda Steiner Designs Deck the Halls stamp along with some Neenah Classic Linen card stocks to do some watercoloring with Gelatos®. I’ll be starting a New Gelatos® For Card Makers Series, sharing different ways you can incorporate Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match line of products in our card making. I’m starting this series because I’ve heard many people mention, Gelatos® as a Mixed media medium. Gelatos® are such versatile medium that can be used for both mixed media and card making. It’s a fantastic medium and it’s very easy to work with. Hopefully I can share some techniques with different products, to showcase the versatility of them. I’m starting out with my very first Christmas card for 2015. Yeah, I’m a little behind so I better get started, lol.
I’m using this super adorable stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs and I’ll share some tips and techniques on how we can watercolor using a various colors from the Gelatos® line. I’m using these Neenah Classic linen card stocks to do some blending with or without water. These classic linen card stocks are fantastic with watercolors. They are not a watercolor card stocks but they work fabulous with watercoloring and I highly recommend trying them out. I am definitely in Love. They have these great textures to these card stocks and the texture really shows through, even with a coloring medium on top. You’ll definitely see the texture through it as we start the application of colors. i’m using a very traditional Christmas colors and I’ll share some tips on how you can get the Glowing Christmas light look, with watercoloring.

Saw your CUTE kittie cards on Gerda’s blog. Darling! Great coloring and I like the “glow.” I don’t use my gelatos because I had trouble blending them and I always ended up with a “messy” look. Thanks for the video and upcoming videos showing how to use and blend them. I appreciate that! 🙂
Thank you so much☺️
