A Love-ly watercolour card

Good afternoon and a big welcome. Hope you all had a lovely (crafty!) weekend.

I thought I would post a quick crafty share this afternoon. This project was designed by my lovely downline Hayley for our team shoebox swap last week.

I love this trend for watercoloured backgrounds and was intrigued to know how she'd created this one. It had a lovely metallic sheen that the photos don't quite capture. Anyways, she introduced us to a new (sadly non SU) product called, Gelatos. These are watercolour crayons that give this fab blended background. They work perfectly with our beautiful Stampin' Up! colours and cardstock.

So we blended the Metallic Gelatos and then created matching embellishments using the Expressions Thinlits and the Bitty Butterfly Punch (I love this punched peek a boo feature of the card!). The Bermuda Bay background layer was embossed with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. To finish we tied a button with Linen Thread and glue dotted within the middle of the buttefly.

A really lovely new technique (although I'm sure this'll get expensive when I have to buy the whole collection of Gelatos!! *lol*) and a beautiful card too.
