Oh my goodness! I'm so excited! I have created a Gel Card!
Over at Tiddly Inks they are having a Gel Card Challenge .... way too hard I thought to myself yesterday .... but maybe I'll try it and see what happens. So off to the supermarket to purchase some hair gel .... first time ever!
First I coloured in Tiddly Inks gorgeous mermaid! I love this image and have used her in another challenge. Last time I coloured her tail in orange but this time I chose ...... yep you guessed it my favourite colour purple!
I spent ages colouring her ... so here is a picture.......
So the following pictures will probably explain it all. The biggest problem I had was finding a zip lock bag the right size. I eventually found one and popped some gel in it ... probably a small tablespoon full and then added some glitter. And of course I got it all over my hands but it does smell quite pleasant :)
I was going to emboss the front of the card with the cuttlebug but I thought with the lovely shimmery blue paper it would look better smooth.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-
Tiddly Inks Challenge #60 Gel Card
Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #6 Beach/Ocean
Try It On Tuesday Card Week From The Beach
There are so many challenges that this card would be suited to ... but I do prefer to create a card for each challenge. Its not really about winning (although it would be awesome!) but about getting motivated and learning new skills ... and I'm certainly doing that.
Thanks for checking out my card :)
Enjoy your craft ....
