Hello! I created this with the Impression Obsession You are My Sunshine Challenge in mind. I didn't have much in my stash that seemed to work with this theme so I purchased a pack of yellow gelatos hoping it would spark my creativity. The colors are so beautiful and vibrant but I they are going to take some practice. They don't blend the same way distress ink does. I rubbed gelatos on paper, spritzed with water and then used a paintbrush to move the paint around. I let it dry and then cut the hollyhocks out of the colored paper.
I used distress stains to create the sentiment layer. After it dried I stamped the sentiment in black. The lattice design behind the sentiment is the chain-link texture stamp is also from Impression Obsession. I love it - it added so much depth to the image.
The top layer is popped up with foam tape so there's more dimension than appears in the photo. Thanks for looking!
