Cotton Candy and Gelatos -- it's making me hungry!

The current linky party at All That Stickles is Cotton Candy.  Maybe it's the color name, but something about it made me want to break out my Gelatos and play with them while making this card. Since, I'm the artist, that's exactly what I did!  Here's my Cotton Candy Stickles, plus Gelatos card:

I put 3 different colored Gelatos on a craft sheet, spritzed some water on them, then used my finger to mix the Gelatos and water together.  Then, I used them as my ink pad, stamping on to watercolor paper.  The cotton candy flower was heat embossed, then fussy cut.  The stamp set is from Raisin Boat, and it's Really Reasonable Ribbon.  And, of course, Cotton Candy Stickles. 

Don't forget to link up your Cotton Candy creations to the current linky party here.  You have through May 24.

Come back and visit tomorrow for the All That Stickles monthly blog hop.  We're touring the Ice Cream Shoppe. Yummy!
