Gelato Watercolor Card

If you haven't tried them, Gelatos are a type of watercolor crayon made by Faber Castell. There are lots of ideas on Pinterest for different ways to use them. 

For this card I heat embossed the sentiment (Verve Stamps) on watercolor paper. Then I mixed a little water with three different Gelato colors. and used them to paint washes of color over the sentiment. 

The idea for this card came from the Calling All Sistahs Challenge. Calling All Sistahs is a new challenge created by Cas-ual Friday Stamps. The purpose of the challenge is to make encouraging cards and also to help raise breast cancer awareness. 

I'm also sharing this card over at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog where the current challenge is to make the sentiment the focal point.
