Our challenge last week by a fellow coach was to make a card using anything created with the Gel Press. Since I had quite a few sheets from playing last week with my downline and another team this was a bit easier. Just had to decide on which one to use, a layout, a theme.... well, it really wasn't all that easy after all.
I used assorted Splashes to make the background. I used Rich Coral, Limeade Splash, and Banana Cream card stocks trying to match the colors in the background. Since the background reminded me a bit of Fall colors I used our Hello Fall stamp set (can get as a Bundle) for the leaves and text. I only used 2 inks, Cocoa Powder and Clear Pigment. I stamped the leaves on a piece of Banana Cream with the Clear ink and used our Rich Sorbet PanPastel collection and a large Dauber Dowel to color. After coloring I went over the leaves with Gold PanPastel.
You can see the Gold sheen on the leaves in this picture. I also used our Circles die set, the Amaze machine, Foam Squares, and Easy Glide Adhesive.
I guess I haven't shown you the backgrounds I made!
We had a lot of fun trying different things to make texture, mediums, and stencils. And with 7 of us, the chatter was running! What great fun!
