I made this card in just over an hour's time today, a rare one for me! I had decided I wanted to use the color scheme from Color Throwdown, using Gelatos in shades I think ressembles the yellow, peach and pink og the image. The panel was first covered with gessol. After adding the colors and blending I added a new coat of gesso. The thing about this is that when I spray on water and rub off the excess I also remove some of the gesso and I do like the uneven color effect it gives. Then I ran the panel through an embossing folder and splattered a bit of clear shimmery mist for sparkle.
My unkinked Stamping Bella was colored with Promarkers, her dress is peach and I drew white gel pen flowers on it. I machine stitched around the edges, added three pearls and a die cut panel with a birthday greeting.
