Tutorial Tuesday - Gelatos: An Alternative Ink!

Hi my Stamping Lovelies! 
Welcome back to The Aviary
& another Guest Designer post from me, Amanda Baldwin.
I am so delighted to be sharing some more stamping goodness with you all!

Before we get to my post, I want to announce the winner of our blog hop prize:
What a great idea! I loved this. I am feeling inspired to get in my studio! Thank you for inviting me along for the fun!
Steffanie, please contact Carrie at paperwingsproductions@hotmail.com for instructions on how to claim your prize.  Thanks to everyone who joined us!

Today I'm sharing a super quick 
(& really easy)
 technique to try with your Paper Wings Productions stamps and 
Faber-Castell Gelatos.

Here's how......

 Select your favourite Paper Wings Productions stamp set, 
- my new favourite (lol, I have soooooo many favourites!) is the 
 and generously cover it with your Gelato.

Activate the Gelato 'awesomeness' with a tiny amount of water and a paint brush. 
The Gelato will transform into an amazing ink!

Really cool, huh?!!

Stamp away until content! 
I started blending my Gelato colours to create fun shades (as shown above). 
My second stamp image was created by combining purple with aqua......


Once the stamped image is dry, 
re-stamp over it in a permanent black ink to add a little more dimension and depth. 
And voila! 
What an amazing result!
I created this beautiful tag using this super cool "gelatos as alternative ink" technique. 
Isn't  it super pretty?

Thanks for taking flight with me today!
 I hope you give this technique a try with your favourite
