Practical Scrapper Tutorial....Gelatos Tagged!

As a member of the Specialty Team over at Practical Scrappers....I get the chance to do tutorials!!

My tutorial on how to make this tag background is up over there today, but I'll share some here too!

If you'd like very detailed pictorial over at Practical Scrappers is HERE.

But I will share that I used 3 complimentary shades of gelatos....colored them onto the
tag, and then blended with my finger to get this:

 And then I used a damp paper towel to remove some of the gelato (since they react with
water) to give it a feathery look like this:

And lastly, a close up of the details after it was finished:

I am in love with these Prima Doll stamps!  They make for a fun mixed media project!
