Watercolor -ish

 There are so many ways to play with Gelatos. Altered Pages carries one of the best selections. My favorite would be the tropical set.  One way I have always wanted to try was on a card or tag for the illusion of watercolor. 
Take your rubber stamp and pick your Gelato stick color of choice. Here I have a nice green for the stems of the roses. Apply the Gelato directly onto the stamp keep the tip flat. Do this lightly, there is no need to press head because they are creamy like a lip butter for your lips.
 I did the same here with a pink and different shade of green for the leaves. You can use both red rubber and clear for this technique. Next mist the stamp to activate the Gelatos. Press stamp on card in desired place. You can create all sort of beautiful Tags,ATC's and Cards  with this simple look. Be sure to take a look at our large selection of stamps. We carry some unique one of kind. 

Happy Creating

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
