Mid Month May CAS Mix Up Card Challenge Reminder!

Today I'm posting another card for the CAS Mix Up Challenge to remind you that you have until May 24th to get your card linked up!
Here is hostess Bonnie's challenge for us this month:  Use Gelatos or Crayons - but don't worry if you can't think of what you might do with these -  check out all the videos linked to over at the blog!
 This time I used Gelatos
 (you can see my Distress Crayon card here if you missed it!).  
I  mixed Bubble Gum Gelato with Liquitex Light Modeling Paste and spread it over a stencil.  
I watched this video that Bonnie provided us:  Stenciling with Gelatos by Kimberly Crawford
Here are a few photos of how I did it.
First I spread some modeling paste onto my craft mat.  Then I scraped some Bubble Gum Gelato off the stick onto the mat and then mixed it into the paste.
I spread the mix over Tim Holtz Scribbles stencil onto a panel of Bristol Smooth Surface paper being sure it was all covered and scraped over thinly and evenly. 
(wash your stencil and pallet knife immediately after use)
I cut a 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" piece out of the stenciled panel, layered it to a white card panel with foam dots, stamped and die cut the butterfly and layered it over the stenciling with foam dots.  Then I stamped the sentiment and layered the panel to a white card base.

Please join us and show us how you use Gelatos or Crayons!  There are several videos over at the CAS Mix Up Blog to inspire your creativity!  
You have until 5/24 to link up your creation!

Such an eye catching card. The technique is so effective and the vibrancy of the pink is beautiful. Love how you left that stunning butterfly not coloured. One special card x

WOW! LOVE this card Julia. Gorgeous, vibrant pink for your background. Great idea to mix the gelatos with embossing paste ... looks amazing. And LOVE that you kept your butterfly black and white. It really pops off the bright pink. xx

Looking amazing Julia, I love your card, the bright pink and black and white really eye catching, been struggling to use my Gelatos, so maybe there's some texture paste and stencils happening, thanks for the inspiration

A simple flutter stamped in black against that pop of pink. Definitely leaves a Big Punch. A beautiful card Julia, with the perfect dosage and a terrific design. xx
