A Little Birthday Wish.......

Time for a little birthday wish for one of my co-workers!!  I sure hope she likes it!  Thank you for joining me for another Technique Junkie Thursday!

This is the first time I've tried this technique, called Goosed Gelatos.  You'll find the directions on the TJ's Artistic Effects CD.  It is a GREAT CD!  I played with it for a whole day and have all kinds of yummy background pieces to turn into projects to share with you!  I consider this CD a more bang for your buck CD.  It demonstrates the use of so many things we already own, just one more way (or two, or three, or four more ways.....)  You'll find new ways to use your distress stains, goose bumps, gesso, sprays, gelatos and more!

But, enough about that.  Let's talk about my card
 As I mentioned, the technique I'm show casing today is called Goosed Gelatos.  I LOVE THIS TECHNIQUE!!  Sorry for shouting, but WOW!  what colorful and interesting backgrounds it produces!  If you are unfamiliar with gelatos, they are a highly pigmented color stick---I tend to think of them as being like lipstick in texture and vibrancy.  They come in a variety of colors.  If you are anything like me, you'll need them all!  This is the pack I have:
I adore it and it gives me soooo many choices!!  For this project, I used Lavendar, Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum, Pistachio and Grape.  To learn all of the details of this fun technique, you can purchase the Artistic Effects CD here.

After my amazing background dried, I finished it off with some cardstock candles and a few fun Technique Junkie Stamps.  You'll find A Little Birthday Wish (#SD398) and Make A Tree Set (#SS014) in the Technique Junkie Stamp store!

That's all for me today!  Go ahead and get inky....I'd love to see what you're working on....
Don't forget to be awesome!  TTFN, Jane
