Steampunk Gelatos Tag Art

I thought it would be fun to actually make something with the Steampunk Gelatos so today I have a couple tags for you.  In addition to the 4 Steampun Gelatos I also added gold and silver gelatos.

I started off by scribbling a line of Gelatos across the width of the tag.  I then spritzed with water,

massaged the water into the line of color

then tilted the card so the gelatos would run down the tag.

I did this using Cinnamon, Black Cherry, and Iced Coffee.

I then flipped the tag over and repeated the steps but this time I used the Iced Chai, Gold and Silver.

You can see all of the beautiful metallic shine you get from the metallic Gelatos...  Really looks so much prettier in person.

Now don't waste all of that great colored water that drips off your card.  I always keep a spare tag or two around to soak up the excess.

Next I used a make up sponge to apply more of the Iced Coffee over a stencil.  I simply scribbled the Gelatos onto my craft mat and picked it up as needed with the sponge.  Works very well and is less messy than trying to scribble the gelatos over top a stencil.

I added a bit of stamping and a cut off from the clock I used the other day.

And finished it off with a few more stamped images and some letter stickers!

Stamps: 7 Gypsies Time Pieces (background);

I also did a little stamping on the extra tag I soaked up the drippings with!

So there you go...more fun with the Steampunk Gelatos!
