Tag with Gelatos

Hello, blog friends, I'd like to share a tag I made for Faber-Castell
with some quick steps and fun techniques. I love the water color effect that
Gelatos made and they even made beautiful result on seam binding ribbon.

Here is how I made this colorful tag with Gelatos and PITT Big Brush Pens.

Apply various colors of Gelataos on to the craft sheet and mist the colors
with water. Press the tag onto the colors then dry it with a heat tool.

Add the images on the tag using PITT artist pen in Black and clear stamps.
Color the edges of the tag and images with PITT Big Brush Pens. Randomly
add some more texture and interest using Dabber and Gelatos. Apply some
Glaze on the image to make the shining effect.
Apply various colors of Gelatos on the craft sheet, mist with water, and
press the Seam Binding ribbon on to the color mixture. Crinckle the
ribbon and dry it with a heat tool.
Here is the close up photo of the beautiful colors of Gelatos and PITT artist pens.

I share this project at: Artist in Blogland: Show and Tell Saturday and
Have a wonderful day!
