Inspirational Canvas using Gelatos®

Paper Crafter Crayon Card


Hello everyone!  Today I would like to show you how you can use your Paper Crafter Crayons with the Gamsol technique and also add some color to your ribbon with the Gelatos to make an adorable Scripture card.  Are you ready? Here’s how I made it:

I gathered my supplies: Gelatos: Grape Metallic , Bubble Gum, Guava and White, Paper Crafter Crayons: range of pink, yellow and orange and PITT Artist Pens:  white, plastic cup, Gamsol, cardstock and some Dies …. Later on I added the ribbon.


Step 1

Add some Paper Crafter Crayons scratch on the cardstock add as much or less color as you like! I used: the wide range of pink, red, orange and yellow.   I accent the border with Bubble Gum and Grape Metallic Gelato. You will end up with something like this:


Step 2

Using a blending sponge apply Gamsol to your background CS  and you will see how the colors blend nicely and smoothly .  You can add more color if you like! Make sure not to over apply the Gamsol because your paper can get soaked. 


You can then add more color to the borders using your Gelatos.

Step 3

Did you know that you can add color to any  ribbon with Gelatos?  When you are comfortable with the background get your white ribbon and add some Gelatos randomly to it… then sprits or rub some water on it to blend the colors together let it dry before add it to your card. will end up with something like this:


I then get all my pieces together and assembly using PITT Artist pens: white add some dots border to the paper border before adding to the top layer of my background …… when your finished assembly all pieces together…..Voula, my card is done!

Thanks for the tutorial. I've never used it, but have seen a lady use colored pencils with it at the rubber stamp show. Thanks. I LOVE Gelatos, and NEED the newest colors, too!


Where did you find the saying you have stamped on the card? I love it.
