Just Gellin'


The SCS Free 4 All Challenge was to use gel pens in our creations. I immediately thought of the bandana technique, where you stamp a paisley image, then add white gel dots around each one. I really dug into the archives with this one...using one of my daughter's stamps that she collected in grade school. This was during her era of 'gotta have a horse" time. The best we could do was have her take horseback riding lessons on someone else's horse. A couple of Labels Ten Nesties and an oval were cut with a CB and layered with dimensionals. No frills with this card. Thanks for visiting and commenting...TGIF!

STAMPS: The Stamp Pad Co.
PAPER: Tempting Turquoise, Black, White
INK: Versafine Onyx Black, Tempting Turquoise
ACCESSORIES: CB, Labels Ten & Oval Nesties, Metal Dots, Ribbon, Tag die, White Signo gel pen, Sponge
