Tonight's Creations

I put a small amount of hair gel in a plastic baggie, I added a drop of blue ink to color it. The images were colored with pencils and blended with mineral spirits and highlighted with twinkling H2O's. The window was cut the the scalloped rectangle Nestabilities. This is the inside of the gel window card. The dolphin shows through the window. This was a really fun card to make. I have been wanting to make one of these for a long time but was leary. I am definately going to make more. I was sent this image through a swap on SCS. I really want to find the stamp, it's so cute! I colored them with pencils and blended with mineral spirits and highlighted them with Twinkling H2O's. After all was dry, I added glitter glue to the wings, flower and ground. After that was dry I put crystal effects on the wings, antenea, stingers and the bunny's eye. Close up of the bunny so you can see all of the sparkle and shimmer. This will be a hard card to give away! I am so happy with how it turned out.
Things have been good here in the Sunshine State. We have been getting much needed rain almost daily. The downside is it's keeping the pool from getting past 85 which is still a tad cold to swim in unless you are super hot and just jump in, then it feels good. :)
