Motorcycle Mania

Good Mornin' Friends.  I was able to go shopping yesterday for some new supplies. Mostly I picked up some organizing items.  I have made so many cards that I have an over abundance.  So, I bought 5  16qt. tubs to store them in.  I think I will make up sets of cards for Christmas presents this year.  I also found some really good deals at Jo Ann's.  Almost everything I bought was on sale.  I bought my first set of Gelatos today.  I used them to make my card for this post.  I also found the most beautiful paper pad at Hobby Lobby.  It's called Barnwood Pretty from the Paper Studio and I can't wait to use some of the papers.  All of the Spare Parts embellishments were on sale for 50% off.  Yep, I made out like a bandit.

I used images from Doodle Pantry called Motorcycle Mania to create my card.  I also used the Ombre Technique.

I really like the way the Gelatos work.  I used a paintbrush and water to blend the colors together.  I watched a video on Youtube that shows how you can use your fingers to blend them too.

Thank you for checking out what I created today.  Have a wonderful Saturday.  God bless.
