Gelatos - I adore you!

It's been a REALLY long week at work this week so I decided to pull out lots of goodies and play.  Art therapy you's always good for the soul ;)  

So I started off with a bit of DecoArts Modeling Paste over a MFT hearts stencil.  I applied the paste to just one side of the card panel...  Of course I heated it to speed up the drying.

Then I pull out lots of different colors of Gelatos and scribbled away!

Then I initially blended with my waterbrush to get the Gelatos into a more willing state of mind to move about then I tilted and spritzed it with more water.  As I tilted the card I had my heat tool ready to freeze action on some of the drips.

Next I took a baby wipe and wiped the Gelatos off of the pasted hearts.

I then stamped some flowers (Stampendous!) off to the side with London Fog Memento Ink.

While I was at it I also stamped this fun open dot pattern (JFF) using bronze & copper Delicata ink over various parts of the card.

Next I colored the flowers in with Memento Markers...

Stamped my sentiment (Avery Elle) onto a die-cut...

Added it to the card, and finished it off with a few dots of Tuxedo Black Pico Embellisher!

Ahhhh, I feel better already!
Have you had a chance to revive yourself with art lately?
If not you really should...helps take away the stress of the day :)
Stay Inky My Friends!!
