Watercolor Silhouette

Hi There ~ Kendra here today & I have a fun card to share with you today!   This card was so easy to make and it's perfect for making a bunch at once.  The stamps I used are the Floral Silhouette single and the True Friends set.  I also a few of my Gelato sets ~ (two colors from the 50's Diner Collection & Green).

First I measured and pre-cut some white cardstock.  Then I colored the 3 Gelato colors on the cardstock.  Like I said earlier, this is a great card to mass produce, so I made several.

Next, I took my watercolor brush and smeared the Gelato pigment colors so they would blend together.

Once they were dry, I stamped my Floral Silhouette image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink directly on the Gelato colored cardstock and then stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the card.

Stamps: Floral Silhouette single and True Friends 
Ink: Memento-Tuxedo Black; Faber Castell Gelato sets; 50's Diner Collection & Green
Paper:  Bazzill cardstock
Embellishments: May Arts Ribbon

Love your card. Did not know that you could use regular card stock with Gelatos. Thanks for the tip.
