This card came as a result of playing with some goodies. First the Tim Holtz embossing folder which gave a deeply etched card. Then I took Gelatos and swiped across the rows of diamonds alternating blue and pink. Then came the fun part. I took a baby wipe and using a circular motion, blended the colors together for this very soft pastel look.

I was so sure this was going to be a really messy craft. While I did need some scratch paper under the project for the blending, once it was done the colors held fast and did not come off on my fingers or other papers.
The gumball stamp is from SU! (although I'm pretty sure it's been retired) and I filled it with seed beads. If you get a chance at all to play with Gelatos, take it. They are so much fun and if you can get them with a 40% Off coupon, I think they're totally worth it.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for Free Sentiment Saturday.
