"Finger Paint" with Gelatos

Grown-ups can "finger paint" too!!!
The MFP Stamp Shop had a blog hop and a challenge to use one of the techniques that was shared by a DT member.
I liked Sandy's technique that you can see by clicking HERE ... she used Gelatos to finger paint a beautiful bookmark ... and that inspired me to try it.  I really liked the bookmard idea, and the scene she "painted" was similar to something I had cone a couple years ago on a card for my husband, so I decided replicate the scene from my husband's card.

The difference between this and the card I made for my husband is I actually had to create the reflections of the trees on his card, and this one I used a stamp that already has the trees reflections.
It is part of a stamp set by Theresa Momber and is called "Life is Good".  I got it at Gina K. Designs 

I'm entering this in the MFP Stamp Shop Blog Hop Challenge 

Wish me luck :)

I hope you stop by and check out the challenge and Sandy's tutorial on how to "finger paint"!
