There's a dolphin in the water...

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all well and getting some crafting done.
This is my second card for the week.....yay im on a roll!!

This card I have done using the tutorial in the latest Magnolia Ink magazine... a Gel card.

It was so much fun to make, I really enjoyed it and am very happy with my outcome :-)

I didnt have any blue gel so I got out some food colouring and mixed it into the gel and tadaa blue gel !!

Here is my card...

I went around the dolphin frame using some liquid pearls..

Added in some highlites using the opaque white paint..

Im loving these anchor and shell charms...they are so cute!!

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts...

Close up of the dolphin in the gel...

I used some Magnolia patterned paper on this card and all the images are coloured using copic markers...

What do you think... do you like it, are you going to give this gel technique a go?
I would love to make another one of these cards...might try a different colour gel next time...

Thanks for stopping by, Ill be back wednesday with a card for The mad for markers challenge...
