Card with Gelato Background
I was trying to make a quick card before we traveled to Charleston with my mother. I wasn't going to have a lot of time when we returned to get her card done.
In reality, I completed the background before we left but didn't finish this one off until we got back. I'll admit it isn't my favorite card. I love the background. The gelatos really show off on this black cardstock. I think the flowers would have been better if I'd given them a coat of the iridescent medium before adding color. Mulberry flowers are very absorbent so a coat of any type of gel based medium before adding color works best and really has a pretty effect.
Mother did love the card and that is all that matters.
Here's the process video:
