Hello there! It's Monday, and time for another Lawnscaping Challenge! It's a fun one this week... Try a new technique!
Challenge #106 is sponsored by the super fabulous Lawn Fawn!!
For my card today, I wanted to use Gelatos! Well, they are generic Gelatos. Target brand has their own version of gel crayons. I found them in the stationary department for less than $4, and although I have never used the real deal, I imagine the Target version are very similar to Gelatos. So my friend Melissa Phillips made this tag using Gelatos to add subtle color around stamped images, and I couldn't wait to try it!
I pulled out my Small Stitched Rectangles dies and my Stuck on You stamp set and went to town! I stamped the images on a Stitched Rectangle diecut, shaded the images a bit with Copic markers, and then rubbed the gel crayons onto a paper towel, and rubbed the paper towel over the images that I wanted to add a color halo to. I used gel crayon colors that were similar to the ink colors I used. For example, I used red to stamp the heart images, and used a red gel crayon around it. Such a fun and easy technique and it adds so much to the little scene!
I hope you like it! Be sure to check out the blog for lots more inspiration from the design team, and for all of the challenge details. I hope you'll play along!!
Have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
