Happy Birthday

 Ok, so today I have my third card for the May CAS Mix Up challenge - Gelatos or Crayons.  I tried something different and made a background panel with two colours.  First off though I thought I'd see what would happen with Gelatos over wax paper resist... so ironed the crinkled wax paper onto just normal card not gloss) and then applied Raspberry Gelato with a dry wet one - not much happened so sprayed some water on my wet one and smooched it about... it picked up in a few places - you might be able to see in pic.  Then I took a stencil and using Snow Cone Gelato added colour to the dry wet one and sprayed it with water... so while I applied it the water caused some areas to really lighten up and the blue shows nicely - I'm liking the end result.  To finish, I cut down the panel to fit and added a few punched flowers with white gel pen centers and lastly stamped my sentiment in Peacock Feather Distress Oxide.  That wasn't the end though --- I stamped the sentiment on the back of the card so had to cut that panel off and added it to another card.. my elements are Gelatos, stamping, stencils, wax resist.   Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day

  2. A very pretty background, Robyn! Love the raspberry and blue and the sweet flowers! I hate it when I stamp the sentiment on the back. I seem to keep doing it though! Thanks for sharing with us again at CAS Mix Up!
