Gelatos and Rubber Stamps

Gelatos Watercolor Scribbles
by DT Member, Roni J. (

For this technique you'll need the following...
 Acrylic Stamping Block
 Heat Tool (optional)
 Paris, Eiffel View Rubber Stamp, StampersBest
 French Candy Label Rubber Stamp, StampersBest

1. The first thing you're going to do is to scribble one or more colors of Gelatos onto the stamping block.  For this example I'm making a rainbow of lines.

2. Next spritz a bit of water onto the scribbled Gelatos.

3. After you spritz the Gelatos, if desired, gently tap the colors being careful not to mix them.  This just helps the Gelatos dissolve evenly in the water.  Again, it's totally optional ~ it will work either way and create two different looks.

4.  Now stamp the block onto your cardstock.  If there is enough water on your block you can slide it around a bit for a more blended look.

If you've never worked with Gelatos you might not know that some of the Gelatos have a beautiful metallic shimmer to them.  These particular colors are beautiful when paired with this technique and black cardstock, as seen below.
