Good morning, today is Try Something New Tuesday over at My Creative Time. A few of us on the Design Team are going to try a technique new to us. So for me I haven't had the chance to play with the Gelatos that I purchase earlier in the summer. If you haven't had a chance to play with these, they are pretty cool! It's kind of a mix of finger painting and water coloring.
To create this card I first stamped the background swirly stars with versamark ink on watercolor paper, then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Once the paper had cooled off, I drew a circle with a yellow Gelato and filled it in. I lightly out lined the circle with orange. Then I scribbled lavender, grape, blueberry. With my finger I rubbed the yellow/orange in a circle motion pushing the orange towards the center. being careful not to hit the lavender. Then I worked on the lavender pushing the color and blending towards the grape and blueberry. Once I thought all the colors had been blended, I carefully added water to the "moon" for more blending, again being careful not to touch the lavender. I used a paper towel to dab excess water and dry the moon. Then I did the same thing for "sky", adding water to blend the colors and dabbing with a paper towel.

This was such a fun medium to create with! I don't know a lot about Gelatos, but I intend to have fun learning! So what is something new you've been wanting to try? Just do it and post it over at the My Creative Time Inspired Facebook Page for all of us to see!
