Hello everybody! I definitely have Katy Perry’s “Thinking of You” playing in my head as I type this. I’ve been wanting to play with watercolor/gelatos for awhile now so I finally decided to buy some at my local Michael’s craft store. These are Faber-Castell gelatos, the “Blue” set, you can find these on Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson. The colors are so beautiful in person, this picture does not do them justice!
I really didn’t know where/how to start but as I was playing with them I had a mixture of purple and blue puddles on my craft mat and I just grabbed my watercolor paper and soaked it all up. I used my new Ranger water brush to add some spots to the background. I wish it was more vibrant but I’m happy with my first attempt with the gelatos. I used the stamp set and some paper from the Simon Says Stamp monthly kit for January (can’t wait for February’s because it comes with a gold gelato).
I hope to play some more with watercolor techniques and hopefully get better at it because I’m loving all these watercolor cards that are coming out!
Thanks for stopping by!
