Gelatos on Chipboard


Here’s a piece of art that Kassidy made in one of our art lesson sessions that I forgot to post.  I thought it turned out cute.  Later a hole was placed in the top left corner and added to the ring that holds her cards decorated with gelatos.

Gelato on Chipboard, Stencil ed on top and baby wiped   April 2016

Kassidy brushed Darice’s Studio 71 White Gesso on a piece of chipboard.  After it dried she covered the card in a thick layer of Faber Castell Gelatos in Red Cherry, starting at the bottom right corner and covering everything on the way up, leaving the top left corner uncolored.  Then she used a Tangerine Gelato in that empty corner, overlapping the Red Cherry.  She took a baby wipe and wiped here and there on top of a Simon Says Stamp Repeated Hearts Stencil.  It removed some of the gelato color.  The baby wipe was swiped around the edge, removing some of the gelato to give the card a distressed look.  To seal in the gelatos, a medium sized brush was used to apply a thin layer of Faber Castell Glaze.  This was set aside to dry.  On a piece of white cardstock, Kassidy die cut 2 different sized hearts from a set of Designer Craft Cherub Hearts Dies.  She colored and blended gelatos on them and glued them to the chipboard with Liquitex Matte Gel.  Also, she die cut Simon Says Stamp Love Die in white cardstock and glued it to the surface.  An easy do if you have the right supplies.
