You won’t want to miss what our special guest and crew have whipped up using Faber-Castell Gelatos provided by Linnie’s Blooms!

Smitten Designers

Lesley Croghan, Guest Designer

I used the colours from the mittens which are the colours from the 50’s Diner Gelatos. Perfect.Thanks so much for providing the Gelatos, Linnie’s Blooms! I did the wet on wet technique and watercoloured the card front. Love how beautiful the colours blended. also used the same colour as spatter. I somehow don’t get good results when I use the gelatos directly on the cardstock and then blend using water brush. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Anyway, I love the background using watercoloured Gelatos and the stamp set is from Wplus9 called Valentine Wishes. Beautiful set. Finished off with the sequins. Hope you like the card.
Head on over to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and join us for the Smitten!
